The day after a long weekend when Costco is closed is always odd… It feels like I’ve been away from Costco for too long, like I’ve missed something (when I know I didn’t)
I know it’s only a day, but I kept looking at the webpage thinking, “I should be doing something right now, I’m forgetting to do something, Why am I not at Costco?” I believe I have developed ‘Costco seperation anxiety’. Or at least that’s what I’m going to label it as. I’m a creature of habit, so throwing things off by a day kinda messed with me a little bit.
So, how were your Family day holidays?
We had a nice evening, had my Mom over for dinner & made some delicious Indian food. Chicken Tikka and a Lentil Dahl (that was a combination of 3 different recipes, which in my opinion always makes a good dish!) And I hate to say it, but I didn’t take any pictures… I feel again, like I missed something!
It wasn’t a traditional Dahl, as it was a mixture or recipes, but man was it still good. Dried black beluga lentils and some canned green lentils made a great combination.
And Cooking with Indian spices always reminds me of my childhood in Scarborough. Some of our friends families were from different places in India and Pakistan so we would go over for dinner sometimes and, man ‘o man… I remember those smells so vividly. And now being able to cook those foods from scratch, toasting the spices, grinding them in the mortar and pestle… I’ll say it again & again, that food has a special place in my heart! (and my stomach)
To get back to the point of the spices real quick (after the comic relief) As much as pre-ground spices are convenient, if you have the opportunity to use whole spices, toast them up in a hot dry pan for 30 or 40 seconds, and either use a spice grinder (or mortar and pestle) you will be rewarded with some of the most aromatic & delicious food ever. It really does make that big of a difference folks! (at least I think so)
I’m sure you’re saying “hey, less spices and more SALES!!!”
Not a bad selection this week, despite the fact that my list was yogurt and Gluten free pizza, I still left with 5 times that somehow…
Costco is to me, what Newman is to Jerry.
I’ll win next week Newman, errr, I mean Costco… I’ll win.
On a more peaceful note, this little fella couldn’t wait for me to replenish the feeders… Seems as though the deer think the bird food is for them and have been eating all of it!!!
(I think I made it about 2 feet from the feeder and he dove right in! Feast away little guy.)
Much as he was hungering for food, I am hungering for sleep.
Good night folks!
