just smell this!

There are times I don't write because there is nothing to say. Other times it's because I have so much to say, but more to do. This is one of those times. My to-do list has been never-ending and there was no time to write. Which I regret because I've been working on some really fun things.

The other day, Chin and I toured a local wholesaler that we are considering buying from. First we were shown the produce level. It was a giant chilled warehouse filled to the ceiling with fresh produce. We had to keep out of the way of those driving trolley things with lifts.

Then we were taken up to the spices and specialty cheese level, where I fell in love. Not only do I want to shop there all the time for my own personal use, Chin and I met the most enthusiastic employee there. He was in love with food and his job and everything. He gave us the most whirlwind tour of the cheese room-- having us smell, touch and dream of the possibilities. Then he moved us through the spices, telling us where he got them from, how he tracked down the rare and the exotic. Again we were smelling, dreaming... It was fantastic. I wish we had brought our chef. It would have turned into an amazing brainstorm.
