I was looking at my counter last night… probably zoning out a little as I was kinda tired… and noticed that I had an odd assortment of goods sitting there.
Olive oil, coconut milk, tropical fruit Tang mix, Corn meal, spices, syrup and Biryani Rice mix. Quite a random and cosmopolitan little gathering.
I’ve been enjoying the local grocery stores because I can pretty much get whatever food I want. And I can buy feta and halloum cheese by the half kilo chunk!
I get to experiment with new (to me) canned convenience foods…
And find recipes on the packages of snacks that I am used to, that are geared for the local tastes (and the above-mentioned canned convenience food!) Mmmm!
After a summer of living in a kitchen that had to be stocked for a few days at a time, as we were never certain of our schedule, I am back to buying rice in big bags.
And I am building up my spice supply. I need to get a good set of bottles, but in the meantime these disposable ziploc containers work fine. Honor labeled them for me.
