Ok, my little dude has gone away for 3 days to an environmental camp so I am needing some serious comforting. You know, the kind that involves a Nicholas Sparks sappy movie, not taking a shower, a bottle of wine and several thousand calories all fried up and presented on a paper plate.
However, I am being good...
No Nicholas Sparks (don't like him anyway, too predictable a plot) so watching comic book movies instead
Bottle of water instead of wine. However if Jesus does wanna pass over it, I am so into a nice Merlot.
No artery clogging fare for me, it shall be.. ok, well it is a wee bit bad, but heck I am drinking water for gosh sake!!
Spinach Salad with Bacon Dressing
- 10 to 12 ounces fresh spinach, washed and torn into bit-size pieces
- 1/4 cup minced red onion
- 2 hard-cooked eggs
- 2 to 4 slices bacon
- 1 to 1 1/2 tablespoons bacon drippings
- 1 1/2 tbsp. sugar
- 3 tbsp. vinegar
- 1 tbsp. water
- 1/2 tsp. salt
- 1/8 tsp. pepper
Fry bacon until crisp; drain on paper towel and set aside. Combine drippings with sugar, vinegar, water, salt and pepper. Refrigerate all ingredients until just before serving. When ready to serve, microwave the dressing on HIGH for 30 to 45 seconds, or until mixture boils. Toss the greens with the hot dressing. Top with sliced egg and crumbled bacon.
And, I am NOT taking a shower!! Pfffftttt!
