But there are also always a few out-of-left-field purchases, like today's fleece-lined Crocs (don't knock ’em til you try ’em!) and a device for measuring the humidity inside one's apartment (turns out doing the dishes helps more than you'd think). Cookbooks and supplies for using themI finally bought Bryant Terry's Vegetable Kingdom. My two favorites are the cashew butter and sour cherry jam and the almond butter and raspberry jam. This month I finally pulled myself together and bought an identical replacement.
