J.J. and I are preparing for our upcoming departure and next phase of our adventures in Honu. This morning we went to Whole Foods located in Rolling Hills, then to Ralph's in Del Amo to restock the pantry.
We were able to find what we consider some of the essentials including Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Balsamic Vinegar, Basil Pesto, Almond Butter, Kalamata and green olives.
We also purchased Alpen muesli which may be eaten as a hot or cold breakfast.
And finally, a jar of Tahini. This product is sodium free, gluten free, pure organic ground sesame seeds, introduced to us by our dear friend Flavia in Italy. I would be very excited to try it and let Flavia know if this product makes my salad just as amazing and flavorful as the ones she had prepared for us. Available seasonal ingredients including fresh vegetables in Italy and here in Southern California are not comparable but I will also let you know if this "magic ingredient" works.
