Then, I cleaned out one of the drawers, and quickly filled that with more spices. Was that enough, you ask?
No! I needed a whole entire second drawer! Over all, I think I have 3 kinds of smoked salt, 4 varieties of paprika, 4 different types of black pepper, many obscure spices I brought home from India, all the usual spices, and the list just goes on.
What happens is that I hear about some great spice or I see some spice on the shelf at the Japanese grocery store, and I just cannot resist it. But, then I get home, and truth be told, I don't really know what to do with it. Or, I use it in that one recipe that inspired me to buy it... and now it just sits there. So! This year year, for VeganMoFo, I am going to be featuring a different spice from my collection every single day. I can't wait! Problem solved!
