Ohiofarmgirl's Adventures in The Good Land is largely a fish out of water tale about how I eventually found my footing on a small farm in an Amish town. We are a mostly organic, somewhat self sufficient, sustainable farm in Ohio. There's action and adventure and I'll always tell you the truth about farming.

I'm not sure what to think about this....

I went out to the garden to get a tomato for my egg scramble this morning....

... I'm not sure what to think about this. Ha! It was delicious - funny looking as it was. 

But I do know what to think about THIS!

We received a very generous gift over the weekend - a box of 15 Penzey's spices. Wow! Do we love Penzey's? Yes we do!

I got hooked on Penzey's a couple years ago. The shop is kind of far away from us but worth the drive if I'm headed into civilization anyway. Their shops smell like spice heaven. They, of course, have an online store also.

There is just something about fresh spices. I think we all got lulled into keeping spices for as long a possible - like it was some kind of badge of honor. But nope! Throw out all those older spices and start over each season. Fresh spices add all kinds of zing - you can't go wrong with them.

However, Penzey's can be kind of pricey - worth it of course but still. The price tag on this gift set was a pretty penny. It was extremely generous.  I think the mistake some folks would make is not using the spices and trying to save them for a "special" occasion. Not us. I opened one of them right up and it was the star of my eggs this morning.

We'll also be working our way thru all those little roosters...and each one will be roasted with a new flavor - thanks to this fantastic gift!

Happy Monday everyone - are you cooking with fresh spices? Did someone give you a wow gift?

Editor's Note: Is this an affiliated link? NO! Can you believe it? I don't get anything for telling you about this fabulous gift box....except the spices which someone gave us as a gift. I just really loved it and wanted to show it off. Plus I just really like Penzey's. However if you DO want to click on an affiliate link you can click right here and be sent right over to Amazon where you can buy anything you'd like and you need anyway. Why? Because I get a tiny percentage of the sale for having their links on my page - which supports this blog. I'm supposed to tell you that. So I did!

We have a Penzey's very near our house in town. YAY! We LOVE that place. It can definitely be pricy but there is no comparison to grocery store seasonings.

Love the tomato!!
