Today was a pretty nondescript day. I worked on my meal plan for the week while Pale Baby napped for 3 HOURS and made some brunch (fresh breakfast sausage, tomato slices with 2 fried eggs over it). When the baby woke we headed out to WalMart to pick up a few things I needed to make my meals for the week. Once back home (about 3:30pm) I made an egg casserole for the week, baked some yellow potatoes for dinner and made a dreamy, creamy, Italian dressing by The Clothes Make the Girl (recipe below)!
Once I FINALLY got everything done, I paired the potatoes and salad with some roast chicken and sat down to dinner at 7:30pm. Paleo Baby was VERY demanding tonight so it took a while to get everything done.
Day 7 DONE, 23 more days to go!
2 tablespoons homemade mayo (this is the mayo I ALWAYS MAKE)
1 tablespoon vinegar: balsamic, wine, or cider (I used balsamic!!)
1 clove garlic, crushed
1/8 teaspoon Italian herb blend (or pick one: dried oregano, rosemary, or basil)
salt & pepper, to taste
- Crush the dried herbs with your fingers, then add to mayo, along with garlic. Blend well with a fork.
- Mix in the vinegar, then taste and season with salt and pepper. If your dressing is too thick, add either vinegar or water – a 1/4 teaspoon at a time – until it’s the right consistency. Keep in mind that it will get slightly more liquidy as you toss it with your salad ingredients.
