Erbe Italiane di Lusso & Black Eye Peas

Oaktown Spice Shop & Rancho Gordo Beans

I just finished my jar of Italian spice from Oaktown Spice Shop. A buddy gave me a set of spices last year for the holidays. I LOVE this spice mix. I use it when I make pizzas, and any Italian dish…even soup!!

Can’t wait to go shopping in the store! I have no excuse as there is a location a hop, skip and a jump away. It’s just that COVID/FLU is out there AGAIN and all I can say is DAMN. So tired of wearing a mask, but beats getting sick!


Have you bought or ordered your black eye peas yet for new years? We eat hotdogs with kraut as well. I got a package of Turkey hotdogs in the freezer from Diestel! Ordered the black eye peas from Rancho Gordo. They are always the freshest and cook quickly! Here’s a link:

I love Rancho Gordo. I belong to the bean club. It took me a couple of years to get in way before Covid/Shut Down and all that, so I have a damn good supply. Lately, been wondering, should I quit the bean club with so many packages of beans? OR maybe I should be eating MORE beans, right?

For Christmas I bought the Rancho Gordo Bean Whisper shirt for two reasons. It’s Rancho Gordo and it’s red. And no I don’t get any kick backs from anyone. Just telling you stuff I like and maybe you will too.

Happy Holidays!
