I love almonds. Almonds used to get me through the day at my old work. Many of us in the office had an obsession with tamari almonds especially. We would take turns buying them, and even ended up with people making them at home by roasting almonds in tamari sauce in the oven. Nearly every weekend I would buy a big bag of them from Woolworths or Harris Farm Markets, take them in to my desk at work and they would always be gone by our weekly deadline on Thursday midday, if not earlier.
So when I saw some loose almonds for sale in Food Hall the other day, my heart filled with joy. "Almonds! I haven't had almonds in five months! I love almonds!" I would have exclaimed if I wasn't shopping alone.
So I took two small scoops.
When I got to the cash register, those two small scoops cost Rp 89,000!!! It was under 100 grams, yet it cost about $13 AU!
So I am savouring them. I wish I had an oven and tamari though to make them extra special.
