Tea and spices

Let's see. When I was packing things up for the move out of the Villa Maria house, in the early stages I industriously went through my jewelry box and whittled it down, as part of the first stage of moving (full list of stages of moving at the end of this post, ha ha ha).

This time, I am working on pantry management. I enjoy a well-stocked kitchen, but on the other hand it makes me really sad when stuff sits around for 5 years and gets stale and gnawed on by bean beetles (I'm looking at you, erstwhile chickpea flour. Also you, masa harina.). As such, I have too much: cumin seeds, turmeric, black mustard seeds, and fenugreek seeds. Would anyone like an Indian spices collection? These are all in quantities that would be useful if you've run out - I just happen to have double of what I will realistically use.

I also have a variety of delicious Taiwan green tea, and some mild and tasty Bai Mu Dan (Chinese White Peony tea). Trouble is, I will never manage to drink them because coffee is my go-to caffeine source and I'm too caffeine sensitive to consume more than one caffeinated beverage a day.

I will happily send these things to you - just message me your address.

It will get more interesting when I am ready to dispose of this heavy duty three-drawer filing cabinet, eh? I suspect I won't be shipping it to anyone.

The amount of cumin seed you have is well within the bounds of what I would use if I were actually actually beans as I have done in the past... tempted to call dibs on it even though that works counter your goal =P

I mean to tell you, I'm much like you in that I can only have one caffeinated drink a day, and I must have it by noon. I alternate between tea and coffee depending on my mood, so I have an ample supply of both. :)

I suspect we aren't the only ones suffering from this predicament. I just...have an overpowering love of coffee, so it always wins. :-)

apropos of nothing I picked up a pair of nearly new biopace chainrings today, for a song. 52/42, I believe.

Yeah, I turned notifications off. I try to minimize day-time chaos. And then the little message thingie constantly reads "99" so obviously I'm afraid to click it.

Sweet! What do I owe you for those? When are you in Nebraska?

I got them for $5. 52/42 low wear. I can send them to rebeccmeister or directly to you, whichever is easier.
