I’m trying to cook Vietnamese Pho for dinner.  I know I won’t be able to get it exactly like the restaurants, but I try my best.  However, I’ve realized I have a bad habit of wanting to add the wrong spices to things.  I just took a look at my spice cabinet and chose “Bangkok Blend” (because Thailand is close to Vietnam) and “Trinidad” spice (cause Trinidad is island-y and so are limes).  This choice will either turn out to be brilliant or completely ridiculous.
