Heh, it seems like every town has its own "Passage to India". It can't be a franchise! There's one down the street from me. I wonder if their Aloo Mutter would compare? I've never had it btw. Whenever I see it I think "hi Mom!" (Allo=hi in French; Mutter=mom in German). I can't help it!

As an aside, I dropped a small fortune at Whole Foods last night and I came out with only a few items! But I think they're essential(ish) for transitioning to full-time veganism.

Our Passage to India has 2 locations, but outside of that it's just a really common name I guess. You should try the Aloo Mutter, it's amazing. I could eat it for every meal.

What did you buy that cost so much? I spurge on a big ticket item (upwards of $5) every once in a while, but usually it's some odd ingredient that I use a little of for a recipe and then have in the cupboard forever.

I got some 'staples' that I didn't have like nutritional yeast, molasses, pantry- safe soy milk, bragg's liquid aminos, apple butter, tofu, soy creamer, etc. There are other places that are cheaper but lately I've been working late shifts and nothing is open past 6 (other than Whole Foods)! :(

I'm on the Aloo Mutter train. In fact, I don't think I've ever had it!

Ah, yeah, I guess that's the kind of stuff that adds up. I would die if nothing was open past 6 - even the health food store is open 'til 8.

You need to try the Aloo Mutter. You'll die from an overdose of deliciousness. But don't worry, once you get to heaven they'll have more waiting. :)
