Christmas in Spring

They come in brown paper packages, neatly wrapped and packed.  A few of the packages have a fragrance.  I smell cumin as it passes in front of me and then chocolate and chili powder.   I don’t sashay from curtain to curtain singing, “…these are a few of my favorite things,” however, I am filled with glee and anticipation as the waft of fresh paprika crosses with the elegant scent of vanilla bean.

Christmas in May/June

A big white truck has just delivered Christmas to my door in May.  The cache is from Morgan Mills, King Aurthur, Mrs. Meyers and a host of others and will be added liberally to our meals all summer long.  Yipee, yea, I’ll be cooking on my woodstove soon!

Who wants to go sailing on the bay with us this year?!  Click here to make your reservation.
