|A little taste of home in a bottle|
These are two things we used back in the States in everyday cooking. Shortly after moving to Tilburg I found a bottle of each locally and I used them regularly, because I knew it was easy to find. After recently running out of both, I went back to our local Albert Heijn market, and for the life of me, I could not find either. There is a whole section of "foreign" foods that I swear is the spot I picked them up before, and there was nothing. For three weeks, I would wander back through the aisle for another look in case I missed something, and still nothing. I felt like I was going a bit mad (well, madder) since I knew I bought them in our new home.
Yesterday, I decided to take a chance and try the nearby Jumbo supermarket instead. And, huzzah! I found both. I consider this a cooking win for the next few months while I make "American comfort food" - and I'll try to make a mental note about the actual location for the next time.
