Sing a Song of Spice

My kitchen is enveloped in the scent of cardamom as I test the recipes for next month’s issue of Gastronomic Meditations. In fact, I’m not sure they make a Ziploc bag strong enough to contain its powerful aroma.

This will not be a problem until it starts to give off the decadent perfume of musty sawdust, at which point I will probably have to bury it in the backyard. Perhaps I can put it next to the plot I have planned for the bird outside my window that simply will not shut up.
