What Unusual Treats Have You Bought for Social Distancing?

By now, your pantry is most likely filled with beans and dried pasta, and your freezer is full of – I don’t know – ground beef and butter? But amidst all this stock of essentials, it’s important to get a few treats, a few things to keep your bushu entertained.

I bought 12 pounds of dried pasta and four pounds of peanut butter? Yes, but I also bought a large piece of cheek bacon, a bottle of Fernet-Vallet, and a nice strawberry jam (Bonne Maman). If I have to socially distance myself, I’ll do it with a damn flair.

But enough about me, what pleasures from communication have you bought for yourself and your loved ones? Have you tried something savory, something sweet, or both? Did you end up with anything extravagant, like caviar? Or something heroic, like a tub of cheese balls? Maybe you have the ingredients to try a fun new recipe, like that shallot pasta that everyone is crazy about. (Actually, yes!) How about a drink? Have you had some good wine or a few boxes? Tell me what foods and drinks will cheer you up at this time (in case I need to restock).
