Sunday Confessions | 1-15-17


I Confess

I was so thankful yesterday was a warmish sunny day so my turtle could get out and roam and eat. He's been stuck in his hut for a few days! It's been so cold :( I bring food to him, but it's no use if he isn't going to wake up. He is a very groggy, grumpy dinosaur when he is cold. I can totally relate to that.

Do any of you guys order your spices from Penzey's? If you don't, you totally should. So much better quality than store bought, and not more expensive. They have two awesome coupons right now:

  • free vanilla with a ten dollar purchase   92430C
  • free roasted garlic with a FIVE dollar purchase 43953C
  • and you can use BOTH COUPONS AT THE SAME TIME!
  • come on people, get hyped, that's fourteen dollars of free shit

I really hope these coupon codes aren't just me specific and that you can use them, too... 

My favorites are the taco seasoning and the lemon pepper seasoning :) :) :) I'm always having to re-order those flavors. Question: what seasoning is most popular in your household??? For my husband, it would be the garlic salt, hands down.

I haven't really been into blogging lately. I have a ton of started posts and I've just been "meh" with doing anything with them. Winter blahs, maybe?

  1. Definitely winter blahs. I feel you.

    1. Ha, yours would be the real winter blahs and mine would be winter-lite cause hello, yesterday was sunny and above 50 degrees.

  2. Man I don't know if mail order fancy spices are a thing here or not. But I would be up for that. I use some chicken spice blend that is paprika and chili and...stuff? I use fresh herbs sometimes if I'm feeling flush (I try buying the pots and keeping them alive but they always die after a week). One spice I've always been a little gung ho with is oregano , like if I buy store bought pasta sauce, I always dump extra oregano in, it makes everything better! I am pretty spice and herb friendly but I can't abide rosemary for some reason. I relate to Turtle, I have been in hibernation mode for a month.

    1. My mom hates rosemary! I never tasted the stuff growing up, and I would just automatically replace rosemary with thyme or oregano when I would cook something just like my mom until a few years ago I ordered something with rosemary and i was like OMG WHAT IS THIS AMAZING FLAVOR. Now I have a (dying *cry*) rosemary plant in the backyard and I will seek out rosemary seasoned items. I LOVE IT.

      I only buy fresh herbs if a recipe calls for it, i mostly keep dried on hand. im not sure if mail order spices is a *thing* per se, but I live my life like a shut in so, ha. i know there are physical penzey spice stores, just have never been.

    2. What?! Rosemary is delicious! If I ever have a yard I want a little herb garden.
