Oliver's Sophisticated Palate

Oliver's new favorite toy is the spice rack. He removes a spice/herb from it, takes off the lid, gives it a taste, shakes some on the floor, and grabs another. Then, he puts the lids back on. The lids are labeled with the name of the spice. Now, they are mixed all around. I'm knowledgable enough to determine that the basil is not celery salt, but I am not so knowledgeable as to distinguish oregano from Italian seasoning.

His favorites are basil and coriander. He eats the basil and plays with the coriander.

Every day, I end up sweeping about a half cup of spices from the floor. It's actually pretty funny. As a bonus, the garbage can always smells fresh!
