Stash Busting Monday #8: An Alliterative Snack

This week we had a lof of yummy meals, some tried and true favorties, a new recipe or two and a store bought deli made chicken pot pie. Which I consumed entriely by myself.  I also made salty sweet squares to share with my co-workers, which they ate entirely by themselves. In five minutes flat.
