And, yet, moving to a new and somewhat foreign, highly remote, place feels completely different. Although this place is near great hiking and serious outdoor adventures, I've convinced myself that my favorite (healthy) ethnic ingredients might just not be available at my future remote home...
And, so...I present a running list of essential kitchen ingredients... of things I use often or will miss in my own overly-dramatic nature if it's not available! I'm open to rational advice, which assures me that, yes, Virginia, there is a healthfood store. Until then, here's the working list of things I'm stocking up on and researching how to freeze/save!
- fish sauce
- red curry paste
- bamboo shoots
- whole chiles
- whole wheat tortillas (...can I make these?!)
- whole ginger root
- herbs for growing: rosemary, cilantro, thyme, dill
- whole wheat pitas (this have to exist everywhere, right?)
- low fat coconut milk
