Perhaps some of you have wondered what the heck is this blog name all about. Well, I dunno. It's kind of dumb but I've always thought of myself as a gatherer. You know, like hunter-gatherers... I am just gathering yummy things to eat!
I don't know about you, but I kind of love the market! I enjoy wandering the aisles and looking at the foods and grabbing this and that and checking out the ingredients. I find it relaxing most of the time. I love 'ethnic' or 'international' grocers and we have a ton of different ones all over LA with interesting exotic products.
I feel even happier at the farmer's markets. I love looking at, touching, and smelling the delicious, beautiful veggies and fruits. In other words, I enjoy gathering my food. It's not the thrill of the chase but it is a satisfying feeling to come home with my totes full of booty to put away or start cooking!
Of course, there are times when I hate grocery shopping. For instance, if I ever have to go really late at night. I hate the glaring fluorescent light and the music and....the creepy night people buying cigarettes and cough medicines. haha! It's bizarro. I also hate waiting in line at the supermarket, but I do enjoy the tabloids!
Tell me, do you enjoy food shopping? What do you like about it? Would you prefer to gather your food from your garden or in the wild? I know I do. But the damn gophers eat everything first! Now I only grow herbs. My gophers don't like herbs. Or jalapenos.
