Time to Restock…

One of the practical benefits of having my spices in small mason jars is that I can see them and know when they are empty. I also see them all regularly, so I can likely remember if I have a particular spice or not. Thankfully, gone are the days of Thanksgiving arriving and I pick up another jar of poultry seasoning to add to the collection…or, worse yet, have no poultry seasoning left. This week, I took a few minutes and perused the drawer to discover that I was missing some of the spices I would need in just a few weeks.

Then, the baby and I took a trip to Penzey’s and stocked up.

Here is what I got…

Two kinds of Sage to be used with Butternut Squash, and several soups I like to make

Poultry Seasoning for stuffing, turkey, and also for a few soups I make

Ground Rosemary to use in stews at times…

And last, but surely not least, vanilla beans. This is my favorite purchase. I use the good vanilla from Penzey’sΒ all the time, but I have NEVER used a real vanilla bean in my cooking and I can’t wait! Maybe Creme Brulee will make an appearance in our home this fall. Yum!!

This is the first time ever that I am ahead of the game when it comes to spice purchases. I hope to continue the trend with other holiday planning…but, maybe I should be content with this one small victory! πŸ™‚

What are your favorite fall spices? Have you checked your supply? Blessings to you!

    Spices can be so expensive…I just bought a small container of celery seed for my pot pie and it was over $6.00 for a tiny container. Some of my favorite spices this time of year are nutmeg, cinnamon, cloves and vanilla….anything that goes with pumpkin πŸ™‚

    • Yes, I agree…they can be expensive. I would encourage you to try Penzey’s. They have some great prices. They have their 1/4 cup jar (.9 oz) for $2.85. And…you know I agree with anything pumpkin! πŸ™‚
