As I have been working today, I have noticed the pink flowers pouring over the fence in the back. It reminds me of when I put in my garden last year as these flowers were blooming. Alas, I am not putting in my regular garden this year. I am gardening in pots. Too much going on right now for the full blown deal.
Last year, as I was putting in the garden, I enjoyed resting near the pretty pink blooms. Here is that time revisited:
Working in the garden can really tire you out. I think I really need a nice place to take a break. This is my tablescape entry this week in Tablescape Thursday hosted by Susan at Between Naps on the Porch. Y’all stay tuned. There are robins building a nest on my porch and I’m taking pics of their progress that I’ll be posting.
Hope you enjoyed this as much as I did! – Christi
Today’s Lagniappe: Garden Salad with Mustard Vinaigrette
Something light and easy to enjoy.
Use your favorite salad greens and veggies and dress them with this lovely mustard vinaigrette. Easy!
* 1½ cups salad oil
* ½ cup white wine vinegar
* 2 Tbsp. Dijon mustard
* 1½ tsp Kosher salt
* ½ tsp ground white pepper (or freshly ground black pepper)
1. Combine the mustard and vinegar in a glass or stainless steel bowl and whisk them together briefly.
2. Place the mustard-vinegar mixture along with the oil and seasonings in a blender and mix for about 10 seconds or until fully combined.
3. Serve right away, as the oil and vinegar will begin to separate as soon as you stop mixing.
Makes 1 pint of dressing.
