Your dressing sounds good.  I have pretty much given up on salad dressings.  At first I hated eating dry greens, but I have actually come to like it okay.  But a little olive oil and lemon juice and herbs sounds nice.

"which means fat free dressing isn't the good option you think it is" I just always wonder what on earth they put in that stuff if it doesn't have any fat. If you want a low-fat dressing you can always use balsamic vinegar. It does not need much oil.

Plain black flat work shoes.. I'm so not a shoe person... although I did just get a great pair of knee high boots to wear under my long skirts..and I quite like those.

My favorite salad dressing is a fresh, not too heavy caesar

Weekend plans - birthday weekend for me! Trip out of town to see a wonderful play, stay in a favorite hotel and enjoy a wonderful bday dinner with my dear one and my best college friends, and probably drink a whole. lot. of. wine.

Bord, no reason to have it completely dry. Even lemon all by itself is pretty nice, although I think it is nicer with a little olive oil as well. I actually lost about 25 lbs last year and although the weird chemicals probably did their part, it was mostly from making a few fairly minor adjustments to my diet.

<p>So--how much mustard, cider &amp; preserves? That sounds AMAZING. During the holidays I was on a brie en croute kick, using apricot preserves. So. Good. But not so good for my butt when eaten weekly.</p>

It is amazing :)  It's actually a Pampered Chef recipe out of the "Dinner in 29 minutes" cookbook--the first one.

  • 1/4 C peach preserves (but like I said, I use apricot)
  • 2 TBL prepared stone ground mustard
  • 1 tsp cider vinegar
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp ground black pepper
  • 1 garlic clove, pressed
  • 2 TBL vegetable oil (I use extra virgin olive oil--I don't find it harms the flavor)

Mix it all up--I use one of those little blender machines and it works out great in there--just toss everything in and blend for a few seconds. Totes delish, especially on baby greens :)

Sneakers.  I know what you mean about shoe moods, I bought a pair of boots on ebay the other day but I may give them to DD1 b/c they're not what I expected and she loves them, Lol. 

Italian.  I like 1000island and french too. 

DD1 has a horse show on sunday, I don't know about Sat.

thank you my friend! I am very much looking forward to it!  Seeing a production of "The Glass Menagerie" with Cherry Jones and Zachary Quinto that is getting rave reviews... can't wait!

Sounds great. I am trying to find a day to sneak out to see "A Royal Affair" since it is Danish and deals with a piece of Danish history that fascinated me from childhood.
