Curse You Cumin

I bought the expensive cumin because we all know that expensive = good. With it I was going to make my favorite vegetarian tortilla soup. Mmmmmm tortilla soup with melty cheese (vegetarian, not vegan) and cool avocado chunks and soggy tortilla chips. Mmmmmm.

But that damn cumin was bad. It was off - it was pungently sicky sweet. Someone may have switched it with dried sport sock sweat. It was very sad. And because we had a full night of franchise stuff, there was no time to run to the grocery store or out to dinner.

And I know you are thinking OH MY GOD GET OVER IT, but the thing is, my meals have been big huge disappointments lately, both at home and in restaurants. Oh I've got chocolate covered Peeps. Enough to make a meal out of them. But once we cross that line - once we actually make a meal of chocolate covered Peeps, we might as well give into pants with elastic waistbands and long flowy shirts in crinkle/no-iron fabric and bad chunky costume jewelry. And 40 is too young for that my friends it just is. Damn cumin.
