First mow of the season... after I spend a while picking up a winter's worth of fallen branches.
Ayup. Amazon is a bad habit for sure. Tough to break the cycle when yer still stocking up. Bezo's doesn't need all that stuff for himself......Picking up wife's med's later this morning and getting some first aid supplies. I thought I had bought some decongestant spray but about 2 am this morning I got a nose bleed, fortunately I was awake and didn't make a mess. Opened the med cabinet and was only 1 old bottle. Luckily it still had 2 sprays in it, then was enough, not a really bad bleed like awhile back. After that run no telling what, I got no enthusiasm to do anything. Got the want to but not the do its.
Got an Amazon delivery yesterday and loaded the cart with over $100 of crap. Glad I didn't pull the trigger on it and will probably delete the stuff. I need to stay off Amazon for a while but I keep thinking of things I want. Large quantities of cooking ingredients mostly, yesterday was 1 Kilo of instant dashi for Japanese soups and kimchi making and a gallon of rice vinegar. It's a mild vinegar, I use it in stir fry sauces and salad dressings, 4.2% vinegar and noticeably less sharp that 5% vinegar. I ought to go the the other forum and tell CJF what I got in the cart. 2 gallons Shoyu soy sauce, 2 liter sesame oil, and 6 lb. Korean red pepper flakes. Bet I could hear her screaming at me all the way from Long Island. Got going to buy all the stuff though. Maybe half of it.
I was going to say you must be in the Bellaire Blvd. area but I think several areas are known as "little Vietnam". We have a Hong Kong market close to us and a Middle Eastern store not far away. I haven't been to either since this pandemic stuff started and I know neither has the gallon size of Kikkoman Shoyo soy sauce. I like that better than Korean or Chinese soy sauce, more fruity tasting. Also neither has gallon size rice vinegar. HK market used to have the 3 lb bags of pepper flakes but no more, they did have the Kadoya sesame oil in 56 oz size. I still have some. Last time I saw gallons of Kikkoman Shoyu was at the Walmart in Alvin maybe 25 yrs. ago. Got 2 gallons then but long gone now. Middle Eastern store used to have 100's of liter and #10 cans of green olives, pitted and not pitted, no moreWooley, Zeke called my area "Little Vietnam" and we have a couple of asian grocers not far away, one on the bus line. I have been able to get all sorts of condiments. My favorite is the fermented black bean garlic in the jar. But some sesame oil drizzled over some fresh green beans isn't bad either. And they have a lot of fun vegetables.
