Heading out for some food shopping today

On my way to Ottawa to stock up on some spices, sauces, condiments for the larder. Going to an Indian grocer, Asian superstore and maybe a Korean one, if I have the time, and GF doesn't spend too much time at Cosco. I have compiled a pretty big list. Hope I don't go broke.
Curry leaves, onion seed, asafoetida, Naan pan, Indian chili powder, carom seeds, Nigelia, anis seed. Just to name a few. Then in need to re stock on some stuff that I am running low on like cumin seed, tumeric, cloves, dried ginger, garam masala, gram flour, chili pickle. Samosa wraps, chili paste, Chinese cooking wine, udon noodles, bbq pork.......

I'll let you know how I fared out.

I did pretty good getting most items on my list. I didn't get a few things because I couldn't find them.
Black onion seeds, Curry leaves(fresh and dried), coriander powder, coriander seed, asafoetida, Indian chili powder, carom seeds, samosa sauce, anise seed , cumin seed, tumeric, cloves, dried ginger, garam masala, gram flour, chili pickle. Samosa wraps, chili paste, Chinese cooking wine, light soy sauce, dumpling dipping sauce, udon noodles, dumpling wraps, 5 spice powder, thai peanut/chili sauce, black pepper sauce, fresh turmeric, fresh thai chilis, frozen squid pieces(for salt and pepper squid tomorrow night).

I didn't bother with the bbq pork. The line up was too long. I can make that myself with what I have on hand.

Time to eat....chicken curry, onion badji, naan bread, basmati...

Sounds good. I noticed you neglected to mention how your GF did at Costco?

She got herself a few things we need. I ended up getting a piece of Parmesan Reggiano bigger than my head. Sunday is not a good day to go if you don't like crowds....

How do you store such a large piece for so long?

I eat lots of pasta, grate some of it and freeze it in a Tupperware container, and occasionally have to triim a few blue spots off of it....
