MIA... Meet my new friends

Hi readers! I must apologize for being MIA with my posts lately. Life has been busy with getting ready to send my daughter off to preschool for the first time tomorrow, trying to get my daycare prepared to start a curriculum, trying to interview and research colleges for me to get my Master's in elementary education, etc. Crazy busy! So... here's what my tummy's been enjoying lately.

I'm pretty much over bottled dressings... I'll be making my own from now on.
But if you need a bottled dressing... this one takes the cake.
