Caprese Salad

You’ve had a break from my sharing recipes from The Mediterranean Dish! That’s because we’ve been living off leftovers and I haven’t cooked a whole lot.

Yesterday I heated up the last of the leftovers but made Caprese Salad.

I’ve made Caprese Salad through the years but I’ve always made it ahead and served it cold . . just adding the olive oil and balsamic right before serving. Also, I’ve always added black olives and oregano.

Also, the recipe called for making our own vinaigrette but I was lazy and used olive oil and this amazing jalapeno/lime balsamic.

We loved the warm caprese salad and will make it again. Next time, I’ll still use the jalapeno lime balsamic and olive oil but I’ll add sliced black olives next time. Delicious!

 

 

Design Wall – September 2, 2016

Some day I’m going to surprise you all and have something to share . . but not today! 🙁

What’s on your design wall?

Menard, Texas

Who’s ever heard of Menard, Texas? I had not or if I had, I hadn’t noticed it.

Last night we were watching a movie and it was supposedly filmed in Menard, Texas. Vince said “Do you know where Menard is located?” Nope . . never heard of it.

Vince was already in bed, before the thunder got here last night and I was looking at the radar. See Brownwood? Look south/southwest and you’ll see Brady. We go there fairly often. Look west and just a bit south of Brady . . there’s Menard. 

It was about 1:30 a.m. when I saw that and I wanted to wake Vince up and show him the map but I knew he would not be amused. Somehow, it’s ok for Rita to come scratching on the door at 2:30 a.m. and wake him up but he wouldn’t have taken kindly to me waking him up to show him a map. Oh well . . everyone has their favorites!  🙂
