Given how much I love cooking and eating, it's no surprise that I also love shopping for food. Though I'm not a picky eater, I try to be selective about what I buy and enjoy the whole process of exploring the aisles and trying new things. I know I'm not the only one (just search "food haul" on YouTube... you've been warned)!
Yesterday I went shopping to get ingredients for a unseasonal dish: matzo ball soup. The flu has hit my nearest and dearest, so I decided to whip up a huge batch. Is it weird that I consider this a comfort food? (Slightly less weird if I told you I have Jewish ancestry?) A few more ordinary items in my grocery bags: Swiss Müesli (a breakfast staple), sugar plum tomatoes and fuji apples (delicious snacks), two varieties of Theo Chocolate (the best chocolate ever, as I've told you before; I chose salted almond and spicy chili), and tulips (just because). Also, I couldn't resist stopping in the beauty section of Whole Foods, where I picked up the Dr. Hauschka Cleansing Cream, and though I have yet to perfect the method (it says "press and roll?"), I'm liking it so far and will keep you updated!
