Fortunately, there is a light at the end of the morning’s tunnel in the form of this store—one of my favorite little shops, truly—where I will be replenishing my supply of herbs & spices.
Are you as crazy for herbs and spices as I?
My list is not that long this time—powdered ginger, lemon pepper, cloves and Chinese 5-spice powder. I will probably toss a couple of bags of oregano and basil into the basket because one can never have too much of those two items and I do not—at present—have any growing fresh out on the deck.
My favorite seasoning, hands-down? It would have to be white pepper. Oh, how I love white pepper! You haven’t really lived until you’ve made a béchamel with white pepper. (And yes, with last statement it’s official—I am a proper snob when it comes to sauces. Not that I’m all that great at sauces, but I can dream…)
How about you? Which herbs and spices are your favorites?
