Bamboo basket

A Dimasa basket I use for dried bay leaves.
The quantity of the leaves has greatly
diminished. Sometimes I wonder, do we really
relish them so or is it out of seeing
our mothers, aunts and myriad cousins use
them that we tend to not ignore them when we
cook?! Without these leaves, would the dish
taste insipid,lack zing? I really don't know.
A voice at the back of my cranium tells me
that the basket needs to be replenished.....
Anyway, I have placed artificial flowers
in the basket. These were bought at the
Thai pavilion at the annual Trade Fair held
held in our city.
