Good Summer Salad Dressing

1 Jun

Just discovered this stuff — really tasty!

Go to www.islandgrove.com for more info and other products. Just don’t eat this salad dressing the night before company drug testing. Those pesky little poppy seeds can sometimes produce a positive test result.

Sangria is mighty refreshing

1 Jun

Making real sangria can be hard work with lots of chopping and muddling. However, I have found and easy and refreshing way to create a reasonable facsimile. Start by filling your glass with a few ounces of red wine (doesn’t have to be an expensive vintage — any decent cabernet sauvignon, merlot or shiraz will do). Add lots of ice and then fill the glass near the top with some good OJ … preferably the kind with a little bit (or a lot) of pulp. Squirt in some lime juice (or squeeze in a fresh lime wedge if you have it on hand) and stir. Experiment with just the right ratio of wine and fruit juice until you find a blend to suit your taste.
