Mom and Dad will be here tomorrow. I will hand over the kitchen to my mom once she is here.It’s the best thing about mom being here 🙂
But it creates a dilemma. My mom’s diet is primarily Indian. She will rarely venture into salad’s.
Vipul is still mainly eating salads. But he
cannot will not make dressing.
Even if its a simple act of putting together olive oil and lemon/ balsamic vinegar to conjure up a dressing, it is filled with questions.
How much lemon juice? Is this much olive oil a lot? Should I add pepper? Or garlic? How about fresh herbs? It still doesn’t taste like what we had two nights ago!
I roll my eyes.
Call it a combination of late pregnancy hormones, exhaustion and general 10 years of marriage 😉
Here is a simple homemade dressing , bottled up and kept in the fridge.
No more every day Q & A session on how to make a dressing.
Take it out of the fridge, warm it up in microwave a bit, pour as much or as little, toss and serve.
We have sorted out one thing out.
Now the questions have changed.
Which cheese, which mix-ins, which bowl,… ( Le sigh! I exaggerate for effect ;))
