Welcome to another edition of “WHY DIDN’T ANYONE TELL ME?!?!!”
I don’t cook. I mean, I do a little. Now. Now that I’m in my 30’s. It’s taken me that long. I’ll talk about that later. But today I want to offer up an adulting tip for making life in the kitchen just a little less intimidating.
My experience with spices has been a little bit like this:
“Ok, we need thyme. Cool – let me just look through our spices here. I think we have thyme. Maybe? I thought I saw it recently. Or did I? OMG am I out of thyme? Wait. WHY DO WE HAVE THREE BOTTLES OF CINAMMON? WE’RE GOING TO HAVE TO DO THE CINNAMON CHALLENGE TO GET RID OF ALL THESE BOTTLES. OH SHIT I JUST KNOCKED OVER THE CUMIN. IT’S EVERYWHERE NOW! MY PANTS ARE STAINED ORANGE. HOW DID THIS HAPPEN?!”
