The Hello Goodbye Series: Feeling Spicey!

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend.  Why do they always fly by so fast?   We've been enjoying some quality time with my brother, better known around here as Uncle D.B.!  We've been working and playing and eating yummy food!  

One thing that we've been especially enjoying is our new spice selection:

Our current spice selection is a huge improvement from our 'before' selection which consisted of a variety of spices, most of which were really, really old since we rarely used them:

To create a new collection, I picked up a new spice every week since February.  I chose Target's organic spices because I like the price ($2.49 per jar, some purchased for $1.99 with coupons), the look and the size (less spice=less likely to hold on to old spices).  And more important than owning a new spice collection, we're actually using spices now that we are eating less processed foods and cooking healthier meals!  Here are some of the meals we've made recently:

Asparagus Pizza

Shrimp and Asparagus Gnocchi

Arugula and Apple Salad

Spinach, Garbanzo Bean and Egg Hash.  

Bleu Cheese and Red Onion Portabella Mushroom Burger

Goodbye to old, out of date spices.  Hello to fresh, organic spices and homemade cooking!
I'm telling you, we've never eaten better:)!!
