I think I'll fire up the Keurig, have a cup of coffee and try on of those almond paste things.
I just received my Penzey's catalog. I love looking through it , at all the great spices and great recipes. I just used the last of my Pasta Sprinkle spice last night so I will be ordering some more of that. We went into one of their stores in Boulder, Co. last summer, what fun I had in there.

Is that the spice they used for one of their cover pictures?
Their catalog covers are so gorgeous it makes me want to buy the spice just for that one dish. So I guess their marketing is working

Okay, I'm checking myself into "the home" this afternoon. I just read the above as "Pastor Sprinkle." I got up to get a cup of coffee wondering what in heck in Pastor Sprinkle? Had to reread it.

I know. Something for Sunday Dinner.

It isn't "pastor" sprinkle its " pasta " sprinkle. You add it to any noodle or spaghetti dish. It is very good.

Waiting for the coffee to finish brewing so I can head out with my cup of mojo to run errands. Including clothes shopping. I hate clothes shopping. But we leave on vacay in less than two weeks and I need something, anything, to take along. Most of my "good" tops aren't that good anymore...

On a happier note, the stores are near our favorite adult beverage store. Our friend and former neighbor made a Facebook post yesterday about a beer he was enjoying. An "Aecht Schlenkerla Rauchbier". AKA "Bacon Beer". Oh Yum! Considering making "Bubble and Squeak" for supper later this week and I think it would like that beer along for the ride.

Just finished wrapping up a dozen onion bagels. Put the oven on a self-clean cycle. It was time.

Have you tried any of their spices? I sure wish we had one of their stores in my area, I always hate to pay for posting and handling.

It's actually dangerous having a store nearby. You have no idea how easy it is to add another jar of spices to the basket if you are standing there smelling all the smells.
