Since my game plan was to begin cooking everything myself, I decided to start stocking up on the spices. I couldn’t tell you how many are there, only that there are quite a few and I’ve used them all. They all look like one brand – many of them are Badia spices that I’ve collected from various trips to the grocery store. That’s a local Miami brand, so I try to support.
Buying them all happened over time – I opted to get 3 during one visit to the grocery, another 3 the next time. I always set aside at least $5 for some new spices. If I had the same 3 ingredients, I could probably make 6 different dishes with my spice rack on hand.
Since I’ve been harassed enough about adding recipes to the site, I figured it’d be appropriate to alert you to what spices I have in my kitchen. I’ll probably also be doing a “What’s in my fridge?” post as well, just so that people can see that eating healthier isn’t about eating carrots and seaweed (although, under the right circumstances, both can be pretty yummy.)
That’s what’s in my cabinet. What’s in yours?
