Let's go back a month to Valentines Day (yes, I know I'm a little late on the posting here, but bear with me). The Husband and I decided that we were going to set about finding gifts for each other without spending more than $10 and trying to come up with the most creative gift possible.
In searching for gifts to make for men I stumbled onto a list of spice rubs, dug a little deeper, and to my surprise found one list after another after another. That was it! The Husband loves to cook and create new dishes and for that reason he does most of the cooking on the weekend. These would be his spices, ones that are spicier than I would ever try myself, ones I dare not touch, ones that would allow him to experiment to his heart's content. There were already a number of empty spice bottles sitting around the house waiting to be used and I had most of the necessary spices but it was a fantastic opportunity to buy some of the more eclectic ones. As luck would have it all spices at the grocery store were buy 2 get 1 free so $10 was well spent!
|As previously mentioned, the base spices are all present and accounted for...|
|And this is the sort of scene in my kitchen that makes me panic just a bit...|
|Labels went on top so he knew what he was using.|
|There you have it!|
Thanks for reading and happy cooking/making/gift giving?
