Sleep seems elusive half the time. I know it’s going to be a long day after I finish my second iced coffee and I’m still too tired to shower, much less cook.
When it comes to sleep, some nights are just a bust. I’ve come to terms with this now.
As if sleep isn’t laughing at me enough already, a strange man rang our doorbell around 10 p.m. last night. As we cautiously made our way to the door he mumbled something and scurried to his truck.
This sealed my coffee drinking, heavy eyed fate. The sensible side of me knows he simply had the wrong house but I’ve seen enough horror flicks to know its the unsuspecting chump who dies first. So naturally, I slept with one eye open.
Too tired to cook, I opted for something simple – a salad. This balsamic jam dressing is incredible.
Plus it includes jam. Ah, jam: doesn’t it just make you happy?
I use this mini whisk every time I make salad dressing. Whenever I use my big whisk I find it harder to get the ingredients to get all happy and come together. I also use my current favorite jam for this recipe – Smucker’s Fruit and Honey Triple Berry Jam. I’ve tried many jams with this recipe and none seem to come out as stunning as this one does.
