Life is a bit crazy right now, what with 2 houses and jobs and laundry and well you get the picture.
This weekend has been painting and pruning and then tomorrow it is a return to "work" which will be nice, a bit of a rest actually!
But we still must eat and I found this salad dressing recipe in one of my books, it caught my eye because of two ingredients: bay leaves and bitters. I have a fondness for unusual ingredients and bitters really fills that bill. If you have made my version of Penzy's Bay Leaf Seasoning. you could substitute 1/2 t for the crumbled bay leaves.
