the Indian spice market

K found this store and was excited for me to visit it.
He's been making his own hot sauces of late (we could use a gig for him, and I don't mean making sauces, if you have any connections) and has procured ingredients from far and wide.

Incense and myrrah ... you need some gold and there you have it:
the Three King's gifts in the middle of the summer.
I HATE when K is out of gigs.
And I love these shops. Do I really need to remind you that. You know it.

gripe water.
I loved gripe water as a kid.

happy weekend.
it is POURING RAIN here.
Looks like you could start your own mail order gripe water business. Though my experience is that most people have plenty.

Poojah water - what Winnie drank??

OMG I swear you do this to me every time I get to thinking that the shopping in Chicago is getting pretty good.

And strangely enough, Mr. Buxom and I had lots of yummy Indian food last night. Palek Paneer, a wonderfully spicy dal with lots of cilantro, an assorted appetizer plate featuring samosas, basmati rice, and naan. An hour later, I could really have used some Gripe Water.

The round lunch pail is a tiffen box. I used to use one when I worked.

We have many Indian stores in the Boston area, but i just discovered a Middle-Eastern market about 3 blocks from my house that has GIANT cans of stuffed grape leaves. I cried tears of joy over the tahini, hummus, and fresly baked pita. I want to do all my shopping there.

Oooooh! Love places like that! Thanks for letting me live vicariously through you.
So.much.choice.

I would be gripped by indecision.

I was once given some incense that smelt like funky spunk. It wasn't pretty.
