A Letter to my Future Self

That two-pound tub of tahini you just purchased won’t expire till 2019, so there’s every chance you’ll forget where you finally did find it in Peter’s No Frills.
     It’s not, as you might expect, in the “foreign-food” section. It’s not with the fancy nut-based spreads . . . or even shelved with the cheaper, old-school peanut butters.
     Because, apparently, Peter considers plain, ground sesame paste a sauce, and so has filed it under “T”—I presume—one shelf below the Tabasco, along with the rest of the dressings and marinades.
     And, hopefully, he won’t move it again before the end of the decade.


  1. What an intriging entry for this weeks letter... i would not have looked there, searching for it. But searching i would not do, because i don't know this ;-)

    Have a nice abcwednes-day / - week

  2. In our spice cupboard it's definitely a matter of putting one's hand in and having a forage around until the required spice is discovered..I can't TRUST my husband to put anything back in the right place!
    Best wishes,
    ABCW team.

  3. Well, I guess I wouldn't look there first either.
    Seems like your "sauce" will be around for a long time.

  4. I HATE buying stuff then not being able to find it!


  5. Tahini has been around for 4,000 years and I still had to look it up to find out what it is!

  6. I was looking for plain melba toast a few weeks ago and I had to ask an employee. Not in any reasonable section.
