memorial day weekend shopping.

We were planning to go to New Orleans this weekend (which would have been so fun!), but ended up deciding to stay here for a few reasons.  We have hardly any plans at the moment… might be kind of nice!  I think I’ll get to cook a lot over the next few days, and I’m very excited.  I just made a stop by Trader Joe’s in Falls Church, and ended up with three very full and heavy bags of groceries!  I can’t wait until TJ’s comes to Clarendon, by the way.

I did want to share the iPhone app I use for storing recipes and making grocery lists… I have found ZipList to be very helpful.  It is very intuitive with helping you create your shopping list, and it also does a good job of organizing recipes you find online.  It even includes a great database for finding new recipes!  It’s not a perfect app, and there are some other things I wish it would do, but it is very good.


hello world!

Here is the first post, meant to break the ice of the white space on this page! I’m not sure where this blog will go, but I hope it will be fun for all of us. There is so much to learn, so much to explore, and so much to eat/drink! Have a wonderful day, and I’ll continue on here soon…
