I made it home from the store in one piece last night, despite my massive list:
I did pick up everything on my list -- no more, no less -- to the tune of $225. (It sounds like a lot, but I got a lot of food for that amount of money!) Three bags fit into my push-cart, I stuffed a few things in my backpack, and I slung one last bag over my shoulder. Only one minor casualty (one cracked egg) out of the whole excursion! Woot!
After I finished unpacking everything, I crammed in a few quick cooking projects last night, to boot.
Starting some ghee:
I hate to admit it, but butter is kind of fun. It does wacky things when heated.
More spiced cider:
I kept it simpler this week, using only cinnamon, vanilla, cloves, and ginger. Can't wait to try some!
Last, homemade garam masala:
Can you tell we're having Indian food for dinner tonight?? :)
