eric - is your MIL coming to stay with you? I hope she is doing well, and improving.
lacey - have you ever eaten at Bonefish Grill? If so, have you had their citrus vinaigrette? It is an interesting dressing - tasty, but unique in that you microwave the dressing and then chill it. My DD worked there as a hostess when she was a senior in high school and the first couple of years of college and got this recipe. It has a number of ingredients but they are all pretty much regular pantry items. The second dressing tastes more sweet than the citrus one - I think the juice negates the sugar in terms of taste. What I like about this dressing is that it doesn't seem to separate after you cook it.
Combine in a microwaveable bowl or large glass measuring cup: 2/3 c. EVOO, 1/4 c. sugar, 3 T. water, 2 T. white wine vinegar, 4 t. minced garlic, 1 T. Dijon mustard, 2 t. lime juice, 2 t. lemon juice, 2 t. minced fresh parsley, 1/2 t. dried basil, 1/4 t. dried oregano, 1/4 t. salt, 1/8 t. freshly ground black pepper. Whisk together and microwave on high for one minute, or until mixture boils rapidly. Whisk for one minute, cover and chill for a minimum of one hour before serving.
I have used all lemon juice as I rarely have limes, and have also used dried parsley instead of fresh.
Another nice dressing is one that I use often with leftover turkey after Thanksgiving with field greens (or lettuces of choice), sliced turkey (or chicken), chopped hazelnuts, crumbled cooked bacon, and dried cranberries. Whisk together 1/4 c. cider vinegar, 1/2 c. vegetable or mild olive oil, 1/4 c. dark brown sugar (I have used lt brown too), 1/2 t. paprika, 1/2 t. dry mustard, and 1/2 t. Dijon mustard.
I have also used this dressing substituting mandarin oranges for the dried cranberries, and sliced almonds for the hazelnuts.
Tonight is grilled ham and cheese on sourdough and French onion soup. I am going to pretend the rain currently falling is making it cold outside... DD brought over two dozen eggs today from the backyard farm but had to slam on her brakes when someone cut her off about a mile from the house. She was also bringing a self-contained rechargeable battery that accepts a 3-prong plug so we can make coffee in the car on our trip, and it fell off the seat and on the eggs! So she called me in a panic and said "prepare the cleaning products, I have an emergency!" so we spent an hour de-egging the car floor/door/dash, the battery thing, the mail she brought, and her - what a mess. And now I still don't have any eggs, lol!
