Things are tough for sweet Leela, we think her hearing is going as well as her vision and she wanders around the house more crashing into walls while seemingly not hearing us.
She still likes walks when she wants to walk and she loves food, eating is her thing now. Hubby and I have gotten into the habit of picking her up and tucking her into her bed when she seems lost or disoriented in the house. Getting old is tough!
Miko is happy to be a supportive friend and loves his couch time with hubby.
He does not love the chilly, wet weather we’re getting this week – I do after many months of dry heat! But enjoying fresh salads can be tough when it’s cold and dark, all I crave sometimes is hot comfort food. This avocado-based dressing helps with its warm and tangy balsamic and Dijon flavors blended with garlic flare. It has the texture of a hearty and creamy comfort sauce with warming zing perfect for salads or steamed veggies.

- 1 avocado, seeded and scooped
- 3 tbsp. balsamic vinegar
- 1 tbsp. oregano
- 1 tbsp. Dijon mustard
- 1 clove of garlic

- salt and pepper to taste
Place all ingredients into a high speed blender and blend to a smooth and creamy texture. Serve and enjoy! Makes 4 servings.
I coated a meal salad with it using lentils I batch cooked earlier this week and colorful rainbow carrots.
The texture and flavors worked great with massaged kale countering the slight bitterness with savory creaminess.
Making a very filling and hearty winter meal salad.
Get in more fresh veggies this winter with this oil and processed-crap free salad dressing.
