As of 7 pm tonight I am on vacation. For the next 6 days I have no work, no plans and absolutely nothing to do.
Okay, I do have one plan. I am going to clean my kitchen from top to bottom, sort through all my cooking and baking equipment and get rid of everything I don’t need and organize the rest. I have wanted to do this for a long time but have been procrastinating it for just as long. I have a small kitchen but I have a lot of stuff packed in it.
I want to get my kitchen cleaned and organized so I can start a Whole 30 on July 6th. I have wanted to do one for the last couple of months but it just seemed overwhelming to add to everything that’s going on in the world. I also wasn’t sure I would be able to get the basic staples I would need to do a Whole 30 because the pandemic shut down some of places I normally shop at for my Whole 30.
However, the world doesn’t look like it’s going to calm down anytime soon and I found almost everything I like to have on hand so I thought why not.
Garlic and Herb Vinaigrette
This recipe has been in my big white binder for so long I don’t remember where I got it from
1 medium garlic clove, minced
5 TBS olive oil
3 TBS red wine vinegar
1 TBS fresh lemon juice
1/4 tsp salt
1/8 tsp black pepper
1/8 tsp celery seed
1/4 tsp dry mustard
1 tsp dried dill
1 tsp dried basil
1 tsp dried marjoram
Combine everything in a jar with a lid. Close the lid and shake it like crazy before serving.
