So fragrant, even the dogs take notice as we bring the box inside. Not only do we have Thanksgiving cooking to attend to, but a house full of hungry, tired grad students will soon be relaxed souls fed over the extended weekend. Butter Chicken. Wild Rice Soup. Breakfast Strata. All require spice.
My favorite "must-haves" include toasted minced onion, Cajun spice, northwoods seasoning, shallot pepper, minced California garlic, sweet curry, Aleppo pepper. I also made sure I had ordered enough baking spices like whole nutmeg, Vietnamese cinnamon and vanilla for the upcoming cookie-baking marathon known as December.
My spice cupboard is restocked. Ready to spice it up on Elmira Pond!
