If there were to be something new at Penzeys I'd certainly check it out. But I would be in the know since I would have found out either in my catalog or online.



I know they were selling towels when I was there last month. Enough of them could be sewn into a skirt, huh?
I could handle Lowe's...never been in a Macy's. I do my fancy clothes buying here: thinkgeek.com

Now I have a list of nine items of herbs and spices I need.

The car is ready and tomorrow I'm off to Penzeys store to fill the voids. I came across a receipt from last November for $45 in purchases. I hope I can keep it in the same price range this time.
Have you tried Sarawak white peppercorns?

No I haven't. I really like the Telicherri. They have a nice floral note.

Try a few grinds of that on some premium vanilla ice cream!

Huh? Sounds intriguing.

I've heard of freshly ground black pepper on ice cream but never think to try it.

Bought some chocolate from a small shop in Stowe, VT one time that included cracked black pepper. Interesting. Not bad, but not something I would want on a regular basis.

I still haven't been to the Penzey's here. I feel like it's too dangerous. I think I need to be a big girl and just go...
...and only bring cash.
(a small amount)

Sprout, I got out alive for under $30 ~ and I did have a list of things I needed to stock up on. If I might suggest something, be sure to get their catalog first if you aren't getting it already. Take inventory. Think of recipes you want to make and the spices you might need. Then go in planning on spending enough time so you can sniff at everything. I bought single spices even though I sniffed all the blends. I think if you buy a lot of the blends you can run up quite a bill! But you can't go wrong with first getting your frequently used items and planning for your next trip! And there will be a next trip.
