I've always loved nutmeg. I've also always loved pasta with béchamel sauce. And you should know that my mom makes the best béchamel sauce. But hers is the best because after she added a dash of nutmeg I would always go and add more. Because one dash of nutmeg is never a sufficient amount.
Anyway, there are only two spices that I miss from the US. One of course is nutmeg and the other is crushed red pepper flakes. So try to imagine my delight when I found nuez moscada (that's Spanish for nutmeg) at the grocery store. I have absolutely no idea how much I paid for it because I instantly threw it into the cart with no regard to the price.
So this concludes my post about nutmeg. I'm sure once I find crushed red pepper flakes (or someone mails me some...hint, hint) I'll post about that too. I'll try to make the red pepper flakes post more interesting. No promises though.
