Back in January we had a luncheon at school and someone brought in Ken's Greek dressing. I've bought Ken's dressings before but didn't really like them. I've bought Greek dressing (not Ken's) and was underwhelmed by that, too. The only Greek dressings I really like are ones I can get in restaurants or in Greece, but the Ken's dressing was really good! However, I prefer to make a lot of foods from scratch because then I know what's in it. When you buy pre-packaged foods, they're full of preservatives and partially hydrogenated nastiness. So I went online and found a few recipes. There was one in particular that people raved about, so I finally picked up the last few ingredients I needed to make it. I have to say that I'm pretty happy with the way it turned out. It might be a little on the strong side--the red wine vinegar flavor is VERY strong--but it's very tasty. Now I'm wishing I had picked up some feta while I was out at the store, and maybe some olives, because those two ingredients would round out a salad quite nicely!
I'm generally a very happy person with a deep appreciation for my life and everyone/everything that touches it. (I say 'generally' because even I have my moments...). I'm so in love with my husband of six years, and we enjoy everything from quiet evenings at home to biking to exploring Europe together. I'm a big tree hugger and I often find myself thinking of ways to reuse things instead of throwing them away. That makes me a bit of a pack rat, but I'm trying to get better about letting things go. I decided to start this blog because I often find myself pondering the weirdest topics, and I love to write, so I thought this would be a fun stream-of-consciousness exercise. I'm very opinionated on some topics and very passive on others. And sometimes my opinion changes based on my mood. In my journey through life, some of my beliefs have changed, mostly based on personal experience and/or deep reflection. I've had this blog set up for a while, and I've had other blogs before this, but I've only recently started really writing what I think, and I've learned a great deal about myself because of my (sometimes very blunt) honesty. Thanks for reading!
