Happy Friday everyone! I cannot believe it is almost July! I love July: cookouts, fireworks, swimming, lots of weddings, the 4th (aka my birthday!). Can't wait. Yesterday Gabe and I went to Ikea and Crate and Barrel. Can you believe we only bought shelves at Ikea? We were feeling the self-control, but now we still need a bookshelf and a pantry. Alas. We decided we are picky shoppers, at least I am. We just couldn't find exactly what we wanted and so the search continues. I have been cooking a lot lately. I love recipe names, especially when they include verbs. The other day I made Lemon Chicken Pasta Toss. I have been making a lot of salads and dressings too. Here's a great dressing:
1/4 cup rasberry vinegar
1/4 olive oil
1 teaspoon Dijon-style mustard
2 teaspoons granulated sugar or honey
We put it on a spinach, avocado, orange and strawberry salad and it is wonderful.
