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.

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.

"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.

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.

Most vitamins in salad are fat soluable, which means fat free dressing isn't the good option you think it is. You need a little fat w/your salad so that your body can absorb the nutrients in it.

Fat free is so 90s. When you know better, you do better.

So--how much mustard, cider & 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.

None--home today w/a sick kid, so I'm barefoot. I did wear my fuzzy slippers to take DD to school though. Does that count?

2. Favorite Salad Dressing?

Balsamic.

3. Plans for the weekend

Cheer w/DD Saturday, church & church council mtg Sunday. Perhaps I'll do a little reading for class if I don't finish it today and tomorrow...which is a likely scenario w/DS home sick and hogging my iPad.

On top of it all it is both super-cheap and super-healthy.

I always keep carrots around, too.  They're an inexpensive staple and they can pretty much go into everything.  And I heart my food processor :)
