Just a little hello on the last day of 2012.
Here is a salad inspired by my friend Jen who’s roots grow from Sweden. This salad, her mother’s holiday special is a great way to ring in the New Year.
Here are the nuts and bolts:
I made an orange vinaigrette with olive oil, a little balsamic and white wine vinegar, a bit of orange juice, maple syrup and a dash of garlic powder, salt and pepper.
We have enjoyed our holiday season with the best part being a new addition to the family. Here you can take a guess…What’s different in this picture?
We are all totally in love with our newest four legged family member. He came home with us two weeks ago. I don’t want to exploit him too much but he’s about as cute, soft and fuzzy as they come. He’s half standard American Golden Retriever and half English Cream. The English Cream are supposedly a little calmer and have less chances of health issues. We had thought about going for another breed… but well, we just couldn’t. We are a golden family :-)
We are leaving for our dinner in about twenty minutes, so I’ll keep this short and sweet. We are going way over to the other side of the island to celebrate New Year’s Eve (a whole 40 minutes) and staying the night. I’ve got Otis’ overnight bag packed which includes two pig ears to keep him busy through the night.
Have the most wonderful start to 2013…xo
