Hi! We are over half way through January, a time for those New Years resolutions to be in full swing, along with getting back to work, school, and a more regular routine after the holiday season. Funnn!

If you live in or near Vancouver, you know that we’ve had about 2 full days of really nice weather, so I find these sunny & warmer days brings out the veggie platters and light bites in full force.
