spent the weekend with my stl besties...thought you might want to "meet" them...they are some of my most favorite people in the whole world.
while i was there we went to penzey's. it is a spice store that i wrote about HERE
let me tell you...it was perfection. it was in a old building in a quaint part of a st. louis suburb. hardwood floors, wood crates, organization, and the smell...oh my! before we went i had prepared mr. dc for the trip. he knew that i had cleaned out the spice cabinet before we left. here is what i purchased while we were there.
just some of the bottom rack in the above picture
i bought these spices in bags, (you will see a picture below) because if you purchased in the bag you got a larger quantity for a cheaper price. i knew i had jars at home that would hold the spices. the store had all kinds of mixed spices, dressing mixes, and rubs.
i reused some of my existing bottles and removed the label from the bag that it came in so i could have the information for the spice
that sandwich sprinkle is straight from above...
these bags show how the spices came packaged
i would love to eventually have the entire spice cabinet be a penzey's spice cabinet
in the store they had all kinds of recipe cards for the taking, highlighting certain spices or blends to use in the recipe.
penzey's also has a catalog that has so many amazing recipes. i highly recommend subscribing HERE. and if you need spices let me tell you, penzey's is the place to buy. i found the company to have extremely reasonable prices and the quality is superior! i would buy the spices in the bag if you are going to have it shipped. and if you live near a penzeys, CHECK HERE, jump in your car and go NOW! what is holding you back. it will make you hApPy:)
one more little tidbit...a dash of penzey's almond extract in your coffee is deliciously decadent...thanks for the tip nanc:)
~type to you soon~
