I've been on a mission to try new things in 2015, particularly in regards to my health. As much as I love my morning coffee, I'm also a HUGE tea fan.

At least half of my stash is some form of green tea, so I was intrigued by Matcha, a concentrated green tea powder.

I'm not sure where last week went? I've been busy working, cooking new foods and enjoying our first snow. Since time just seemed to zip by I missed posting my week in review post at the end of the week, so I'm bringing it to you today mashed up with my menu plan Monday post.

It is cold and rainy here in Virginia today, a perfect day for soup. I am so glad I looked ahead at the weather and a nice thick warm one planned for today. It's also an easy go to meal for a week that I plan making a few things from scratch for the first time, including gnocchi.
