I do the same thing with my food, though it is rarely as interesting as the foods you describe. There's just something about the hopeful nature of the original purchase - even if the food itself never fulfills that promise.

Your garden will either be a desert or a jungle when you return, depending on the rain and/or watering skills of any house-sitting-type person you ask a favor of.

Love your blog - I'll be back. Eat well! :)

I'll let you know which way it goes!

Dijon keeps forever, and you need to buy lots to get a full set of the glasses!

Thanks for warningme off goji berries, I only heard of them recently, and I won't go seeking them out now...

Have a good trip!

Yeah, what is it about mustard, anyway? I have a pot of "Russian" mustard, which if I don't wind up using it, will have to be taken away by the hazmat crew, and a pot of apricot mustard a friend gave me at...Christmas?...to use with the can of special liverwurst she also gave me. Liverwurst is long gone, but what to do with such a specialized product? I'm on the verge of going to the fridge to see what other mustardy things lurk there, but then I'll only know more about other rarely-used items that I'd rather not know about.

Gotta say, though, one thing extreme poverty does is it gets you better about not buying stuff you already have. I've got myself pretty well trained at this point.

I love mustard pep talks!

I'm headed to the land of Russian mustard tomorrow. You wouldn't think mustard would be something that could ever taste repulsive, but it really does to me.

What does Apricot mustard taste like? It scares me a little.

Now I'm feeling guilty about those good-for-you goji. I do manage to bury them in oatmeal as it cooks. But otherwise, yikes.

People, gojiberries are delightful if used properly! They're amazing with kale, of all things:

He really means it.
Words are cheap, 'ling: fly to Budapest and make it for me, else I won't believe you.
Bring other supplies while at it. As much as I'll revel on what's on offer, I'll miss your cooking.
