Photo Du Jour : Spicy

Just a quick peek into the spice cabinet. I thought the light was nice, so I snapped a photo. The spices in these jars are certainly not the originals. We bought the jars (and their original contents) back when we lived in San Francisco.

A few of our spice jars.

The jars are nice ones, so we kept them and refill them over and over. In fact, the bay leaves are the ones that grow out in the back yard. They're the best bay leaves I've ever tasted.


  1. They're the best bay leaves I've ever tasted too. I was so happy that the agricultural inspector at SFO customs let me keep them!

  2. Walt, I've always read (and been told) that bay leaves should be removed from food before eating. Is that an old wive's tale?

    Now I want to eat one!


  3. I know what you mean about home grown bay leaves....I pick them from my son's yard and dry them.....yummm the best!

  4. chris, me, too. That was great.

    bettyann, oh no, I don't eat them. I guess I could have said that differently...

    victoria, I agree!

  5. bettyann,
    I find their texture most unpleasant. Kind of like eating paper.


Pour your heart out! I'm listening.
