Sustenance | Rations from Brooklyn Larder

Porter and I pedaled to Prospect Heights on Saturday, came upon the beautiful six-week old gourmet food shop Brooklyn Larder and stocked up on assorted rations - completely unnecessary rations, but absurdly well-packaged ones, nonetheless.  The grainy texture of the all-organic and highly addictive Taza stoneground chocolate compliments the cinnamon and guajillo chili flavors perfectly and the Amarena Fabbri wild cherries would be perfect on top of ice cream or deep at the bottom of a Manhattan.  All would look great on a well-curated kitchen shelf.

    Oh, please don't tell me I now have to curate my kitchen shelf! It is my last refuge of function over form. Sigh. Oh well. OK. Yeah, maybe I can figure out how to put Porter's photo as a link in a widget in the sidebar. Eek. But easier than curating my kitchen shelf most likely...

  7. Mine are an organized mess. I just make sure that all jars face front in order to show off the packaging for which I likely bought the products. :)

  8. A friend from Chicago pointed me to your blog - Glad she did. Entertaining Blog - Well done.

    Good Day from London.

    I have been meaning to check this place out...with cherries in a jar as beautiful as that, clearly I must waste no more time!

    Haha! Victory! I have posted the picture of Porter in my sidebar, along with instructions! Being old is not so bad.

  11. Hi! I think we both went to W&L? If so, saw the post on Cup of Jo and wanted to uphold the speaking tradition... a few years later.
