Buy Good Bay Leaves

My advice to my daughter today is…

Buy good bay leaves.
Your recipe calls for bay leaves.
If you buy the cheap ones and put them in your dish,
they will be superfluous.  
Profuse or perhaps refuse.
You will have to navigate them and take them out
before you can enjoy your meal.
The eye will see them and think the cook went to great detail
while preparing this bounty.
 
If they still have their flavor, it will be worth sifting them out.
But, if they have no essence they become trash to you.  
Unnecessary. 
You don’t need them.  
Buy good bay leaves.
