And this is just the tip of the iceberg. Does your pantry look like this?
I find myself going to the market every time an ingredient is called out in a recipe and I don't have it in my pantry . Then it starts to consume me. I need it, I have to have it. It won't taste the same!!! Recently I took the plunge and bought Saffron! I've put Saffron in my shopping cart many times only to put it back last minute. You know what the bag boy said to me when he was putting the saffron in my bag?
"Hmmm, Saffron that is really expensive."
My response, "I know (with a big hugh sigh)."
This week I went to the market twice and you don't even want to know how much I dropped. This hobby is not a cheap hobby.
YOU KNOW YOU ARE A FOODIE, WHEN YOU WOULD RATHER BUY SPECIAL SPICES THAN A NEW PAIR OF SHOES. AND I REALLY DO NEED NEW SHOES!
Do you have the same problem?
