Farm Eats: March 12th – March 18th

Morning Y’all! 
Somehow, after thinking about daylight savings time all week I managed to nearly forget about it until around 7.00pm last night, whereupon I immediately switched into anxiety mode & was like … ARGHHHHHH & starting saying “ugh it’s REALLY so much later…” you know the drill, LOL. 
This morning I’m meal prepping with a purpose, I’d like to have everything done & organized around the home front before noon so that the farmer & I can enjoy the day,  knowing it will be over quick & back to “evil” Monday morning again. I’m keeping things simple again this week so I can focus on what really matters, coffee, Rupert & snuggles with The Farmer … typically in that order 😉 
Here’s what I’m making this morning to make life a bit easier during the work week –
In addition to sharing our weekly menu, each week I’ll feature a quick meal prep recipe. This week I’m sharing my take on Balsamic Vinaigrette, the first dressing I ever learned how to make – courtesy of my mom’s boyfriend & chef extraordinaire, Dave 🙂
Here’s What You’ll Need
3/4 Cup EVOO 
1/4 Cup Balsamic Vinegar 
1 Heaping Spoonful of Organic Honey 
1 Heaping Spoonful of Dijon Mustard 
Optionals: Fresh herbs, Shallots, Salt & Pepper to taste.
Let’s Get Started
1. Combine your EVOO & Balsamic Vinegar in a ball jar – totally NOT sponsored, just obsessed y’all! 
2. Add in the honey & dijon. 
3. Toss in any optionals. 
4. Whisk to combine. 
Notes: This will make about 1 cup and will last a few weeks in the fridge, if you manage to keep it that long!
