Not Sure What This Means!

During a nap late this afternoon, I dreamed that Toppy Bailey, one of the Wind At My Back characters, was raving over my homemade vinaigrette dressing and begging for the recipe. 

Hmmm...

Has my addiction become an obsession to the place that I am now having conversations with the characters?

Is my homemade dressing that special to me? (I didn't think it was! I mean, it's good. But not that good!) 

Is this an indication that I need to get out more?

Or was I just overly tired?

Or maybe I really just needed blog fodder!

At any rate this really amused me. Definitely goes into the Funny and Weird Dreams file. Not that I have these on a regular basis or anything...

While I won't be taking a break from my homemade dressings anytime soon, it may be time for a Wind At My Back hiatus!

And for the record, here's the recipe for a basic vinaigrette dressing. It's so wonderful you'll dream about it!

Basic Vinaigrette Dressing
Makes 1 cup.

1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil
1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
1/4 cup Dijon mustard (adjust to taste)
1 small clove garlic, chopped (adjust to taste; I used garlic powder instead.)
Salt and pepper to taste

Put all ingredients in jar. Cover and shake well. Or blend in a blender for a longer emulsification.

**Keep at room temperature if using within 5 days. Otherwise, store in refrigerator. Bring to room temp and shake well before using.

Enjoy and sweet dreams!:-)

I have noticed that if I eat close to bed time I have really weird dreams.
