"Making our own" has been a regular topic around here. Sometimes it feels healthier and sometimes it seems more frugal. Yesterday i made a trip to the grocery store with Avery and the whole time she did not stop talking about how we should make things from scratch because it is better for us, and that we should not eat so much sugar(amen little one, we are trying), and that wheat bread is better for us than white(we will give it a go since she is the one that does not like wheat), and then some. So when we walked down the salad dressing aisle i was about to get some and she announced that this would be something that would be better if we made it ourselves....homemade, from scratch salad dressing. Ok!!! I remembered that i had seen a simple recipe for dressing on this great blog. I have made something like it before but it had been awhile. So....
Last night for dinner we gave it a try. I was doing it myself but then i thought i would get Mitch in on the action. He was getting a little antsy before dinner and getting into trouble so it just seemed like a good idea to give him a project to keep him occupied. I sat him down and made him my official dressing shaker. He did the job well. Chris and I thought it was great...the kids ate it even though it is very different from the white dressing they are used to. It is nice to make changes even one little one at a time.
My name is Leslie. I live in Virginia. I am a wife to Chris, a super husband/great daddy/army officer/PhD candidate. I am a mother to three very exciting kids, Avery and Mitchell, ages 13 and 10 and "baby" Delilah who is 5. I am a little crafty. I love fabric, quilting and I love my friends and family. I hope here I can keep up with all of you that are so very far away.
