It’s been an interesting and long week while breaking in a rescued dog and keeping the peace with our other two dogs while hubby is out-of-town on business travel. There has been a lot of challenges with Skipper since he decided to move in with us on Friday.
He is a sweet, well trained dog who is calm and very friendly. But he’s also a senior dog that frequently needs to pee multiple times an hour and drinks tons of water which could be caused by varying heath issues. I have a vet appointment for him tomorrow to try and find out what the issues are and have been at my wick’s end a few times this week trying to watch and get Skipper outside enough times and lots of cleanup when I can’t which is mainly through the night. It hasn’t been making for great nights of sleep for me!
But these sweet roses hubby sent for our anniversary helped!
Since I’m feeling a little frazzled, I was not too inspired for dinner and wanted to keep things simple which usually means a huge salad for me. I got completely experimental throwing simple ingredients into the blender for a dressing and it came out really good!
Sweet and Sour Banana Dressing
- 1 banana, peeled and chopped
- 1 tsp. of Dijon mustard
- 1 tbsp. of apple cider vinegar
- 1/4 cup of water
Place all ingredients into a blender and blend on high until smooth and creamy. Makes 2-4 servings.
For a low-fat, oil-free dressing, it has a creamy and thick texture.
I coated a kale salad in it.
And called a large serving dinner.
The dressing is sweet, tangy, and sour all at once adding a lot of flare to a simple salad.
