It’s absolutely gorgeous outside in San Diego today. 77F, sunny, not a cloud in the sky.

And my usual barely-have-enough-light other than from 11:17am to 12:53pm kitchen has had more then plenty today.

Everything I took a picture of was shiny and reflecting like crazy. The pears in the 50 cent wooden bowl I picked up here were like reflective globes.

The bowl was a steal.

High voltage pears not included.

I made something with these special edition shiny wrappered 3 Musketeers mini bars. These 3 Musketeers are marshmallow-filled rather than the typical nougat filling.

And now my dessert is filled with these.

What I made is delicious, but I have these shiny Caramel and Chocolate Gooey Bars (GF with Vegan adaptation) on my brain.

And I took pictures of something else that’s extremely shiny.

It’s red, it stands up, it helps mix things, and it comes in one of these boxes.

I have a big, super shiny, happy post coming up and you all are going to love it!

What’s been shiny for you lately?

A shiny day and sunny weather? Any spiffy, shiny new recipes? A shiny new outfit for spring?
