Don’t you just love it when you put on a pair of jeans you haven’t worn in a while and find a 5 (or 10 or 20) dollar (or euro or whatever) bill in the pocket? Well, last weekend I dusted off a purse I haven’t used in a while and found these inside:
They have the same feel as dried vanilla beans, and the one I broke open yielded some small black seeds and a mildly peppery smell. The only other clue is this card that I most likely picked up on my last visit to l’Atelier de Joël Robuchon.
Anybody have any idea what they might be?

In other news (if you can call it that, considering how long I’ve taken to getting around to writing about it), I have been honored with two more awards!
First, from all the way back in November, The Yum-Yum Blog Award.
This was given to me by Hope, whose own blog is unfailingly yummy. I have decided to pass it along to the blog with the most recently flagged recipe in my Google Reader. And the award goes to…
I want to give this to my friend Kat, who has just left on a year-long adventure in the South Seas. She started a blog, Kat’ch Me If You Kan, to chronicle her travels. It’s very new, but I’m certainly enjoying it so far, and I hope she keeps it up!
Speaking of housekeeping, I’d better get started on dinner.
