Happy Friday! Happy Memorial Day weekend! and happy 4 weeks of school after today to me and all other NYC teachers! How is everyone's morning going? This morning I got up to go to spin and to do my quick 20 minute weights workout. It's been getting easier to get up since it's light out, but it's still hard. I just try to focus on the fact that I will be done with my workout by 6:45 and then I can have the afternoon to relax and do what I need to do before we leave for NJ. Rewind to yesterday. I got home from work and was debating whether to run outside or to go to the gym. The weather was so iffy all day, one minute the sun would be out and the next it was gloom and doom. I did what anyone any other blogger would do, and reached out to twitter. After being guided to run outside, I went for it and I'm glad I did because the weather held up and I had a pretty good run. There were a ton of runners out, more than usual and only 1 smoker and 2 kids on bikes that almost ran me over (at 2 different times) because they were looking sideways instead of forwards. What is with that??? For dinner I made a quick shrimp and vege stir fry with a side salad and a piece of balsamic chicken for Danny. I didn't take any pictures of the dinner, but I wanted to share the salad dressing with you. I made it at the beginning of the week because I needed a change and it's awesome.
I used it on this spinach salad earlier in the week.
1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
1/4 cup cider vinegar (I used organic apple cider vinegar from Trader Joe's)
1 tsp dijon mustard
1/2 tsp ground cumin
1/2 tsp minced garlic
1/2 tsp sea salt
1/4 tsp black pepper
Combine and mix together. Enjoy over a really, ridiculously big salad! (see below)
What's your favorite salad dressing?
Have a wonderful Friday!! I hope you all have relaxing weekends!
