Thursday's Memo

....it keeps slipping my mind to pick up some bay leaves while at the grocery store on numerous occasions. I'm out of bay leaves. Still out of bay leaves. The crux of tonight's story is that this forgetfulness always happens when I find myself out of bay leaves. Takes a week. Occasionally, several weeks, before I eventually remember to replenish the stock. Dunno. The strange thing is that it doesn't happen with other herbs and spices after I've run out of those kitchen essentials, yet, since I use bay leaves with just about everything and anything that you can fry, kalua, sautee or scorch on a gas stove, perhaps it's the product of a mental mechanism to ration my intake of bay leaves, this forgetfulness.
