Saturday Spending

This was definitely a spendy week. I hadn't been to Phoenicia in a while, and as typically happens when I go after a long spell without, I bought a bunch of stuff that there was really no need for me to buy. Such as a little cheese extravaganza. I also didn't get the two spices I meant to while I was there, malbeb and mastic. I guess I'll get those another time.


$3.69 - Pickled cubeb peppers
$2.00 - margoram
$2.49 - fava beans
$1.89 - dried apples
$2.50 - dried mango
$2.29 - semolina
$2.69 - sundried tomatoes

$4.20 - kasseri cheese (1/2 pound)
$8.66 - bulgarian feta (1 3/4 pound)
