Bastilla?? ha ha.. we are so in sync...I pickled today and took a pic with spices just like you did. I went to the Spice House in Evanston yesterday. Beets with Ceylon cinnamon, grains of paradise and star anise and carrots with whole garam masala, turmeric and ginger! Good luck and have fun with your coming gigs!
