Tasty Tidbits

It's hard to believe we're already several days into 2014! I was hopeful that this year would feel a little slower paced, but not so far.
We were out in western PA for a few days after Christmas. It was lots of fun seeing family & friends. And we squeezed in two trips to Trader Joe's and one trip to Whole Foods. So now our pantry is restocked & we're going to be eating well. :-)

Tink was very curious about the treats we had for New Year's Eve. She especially liked the bowl of M&Ms we put out. My in-laws always put a bag of the dark chocolate ones in our Christmas stocking, so every year I get my M&M fix. :-)  We gave one to Tink & she was having a blast playing with it. She was kinda mad that I came so close to take this pic. I think she thought I was going to take it away.
It was so nice only working a few days before having off again...next week, back to the 5 day work week. Eeeeek!

Here's what we've been eating in the last week:
