Indian Inspired Summer | A Cabinet Full Of Spices

I had a little fun collecting spices at a local middle eastern market a couple of weeks ago. One of my girlfriends, at Keepsake Blossoms, cooked up a wonderful dinner and showed me her spice collection. She had them stored in mason jars and I fell in love with the idea. So, feeling inspired, I ran out to Cost Plus Whole Market and grabbed 12 random jars. I shoveled them into my basket and had a mini Martha Stewart moment. Yah know, if I hadn’t discarded the lids to all of my drinking jars I’ve gathered from consuming pickles, salsa, and jams, I would’ve just used what I had. However, my parents will now have to continue sipping water from my labeled product jars when they visit from Sedona. Baahahahaa!!

As I opened the cabinet to gather all of the ingredients for dinner, the pleasant aroma of spices wafted out to greet me. Like picking the distinct notes out of a melody, I could distinguish the delectable smell of curry, cardamom, coriander, cinnamon, and cumin.

I dug out my little Anthropologie apron and went to town.

Alright . . . well . . . my food doesn’t quite look like the recipe books image but I substituted a bunch of things like yellow tomatoes for red ones, turkey for chicken, and I didn’t have one of the spices I apparently needed. It was decent for my first try! Let’s see how the next one turns out.;)

Happy weekend my friends!
