The Lemon Basil Salad Dressing recipe was inspired by our garden – we’re not doing so great, but that’s because I have no ability to maintain or grow plants. That doesn’t mean I’m not trying! Anyway, I say that it inspires me because basil is the only thing in there that is really doing well. Flourishing. Beautiful. So here is a light summer dressing that really goes well with sweet fruit salads. We also use it as a marinade for chicken!
Ready for the weekend! It’s been a crazy week since the family left. We’ve been working waaay too much, I haven’t even been able to make it to the gym this week! I’m going to be a complete lump tonight when I go back. Angel hasn’t gotten home before 10p all week and I’m ready for some relaxation with him this weekend. We need to catch up with each other!
