Bath & Body Works | New Summer Test Candles | March 26, 2018

The long-awaited release of some summer themed, tropical scents Test Candles has finally happened.  After speaking to a test store that I know usually carries new test candles I found a few photos on Instagram by user @_scentsgalore confirming this and I had to share this newness right away. My thanks to her.

I was told that we will see these candles "test" in stores beginning Monday, March 26th only in stores that usually offer test scents.  I know White Barn stores that have test candles will have these but you can ask at the stores in your area to see if they will have them too. 

Also please note, the current candle sale will end tomorrow night, Sunday and candles will not be on sale for Monday's release. 

Here is what I know so far...

Thursday Things to Eat | Nana's Cheese Haluski

Growing up poor, my mother and grandmother cooked us traditional foods that they grew up with that helped feed many empty tummies. This is one of those meals that left us filled to the rim.

Of course now when you hear the word Haluski it conjures up a bow-tie pasta noodle with cabbage dish, which is delicious and great too.

For those of us who spend two hours cooking the "real" Haluski we just smile and say that other kind of Haluski is for quick meals.

We had both Cheese Haluski as well as Cabbage Haluski made this, homemade way. My grandmother made a Prune too but I digress.

Here is how I made the Cheese Haluski for dinner tonight. Oh, and shhh, don't tell Nana that I am sharing her recipe.
