Pennsylvania is terrible:
Liquor and wine are available at state-run "Wine and Spirits" stores.
Beer (and other carbonated beer-type things - cider/wine coolers) is available at private beer distributors. But only in cases or kegs. If you want a 6-pack of something, you can get that at certain bars that allow carry-out. But I think you are only allowed to buy 2 6-packs at a time. Some grocery stores (the Giant Eagle chain) now have wine vending machines that are only functional certain days/hours (never on Sunday and 9a-9p). Giant Eagles with cafes allow 6-pack carryouts.

Whew. What a pain.

Nearly empty peanut butter jars are my beagle's very favorite toy. My friends save them for us! Her tongue is just *this* much too short to get the very bottom, so she'll work on them for hours!

I'd vote for anything involving coffee, espresso or mocha flavor, were it an option. :)

Today? Trader Joe's cinnamon raisin bagel and cream cheese.

Sometimes cold cereal, steel cut oats when it's cold outside.

Our new house, too, has a ceiling fan in every room, except the living room where there is no central fixture at all. I'm DYING to replace a few of them. Our ceilings aren't high and the house is small-ish so I'm not worried about them helping with energy costs. The ones in the bedrooms don't bother me as much as the one above the dining table and in the kitchen.

Buffalo Chicken Dip! (with silken tofu substituted for some/all of the cream cheese if you don't want all the fat and poached chicken instead of canned chicken)

Also, the foil wrapped feta posted on here a while back is quickly becoming my 'signature' potluck item!

Can I request a post about kitchen lighting that doesn't go over an island? Like a semi-flush mount? I am DYING to replace the ugly white ceiling fan in our new (small) kitchen and have found ZERO inspiration! Most of what I see is pendants over islands and that won't work for me and my 6' husband!

our go-to watermelon dressing is lime juice, honey and chiffonade-ed mint mixed in a pleasing proportion. (read: no recipe measurements).

Or, the feta/basil/balsamic/watermelon combo is also good!

with butter bells, you have to be really careful not to get crumbs or food (toast, etc) in the butter. This guarantees mold. Also, I always shake a teaspoon or so of salt into the water. It supposedly helps kill any creepy crawlies that might want to grow in there. :)
