Tap, tap, tap…anyone there?
Hello, my loverly minions! Remember me?
I’m that girl who used to blog delicious recipes on a weekly basis who recently succumbed to a nasty outbreak of the walking dead that completely killed every ounce of my energy and caused me to deteriorate into a full blown cast member of House of 1,000 Corpses.
For the past month, I have been doing practically nothing but lying in bed snuggled with the kittles while watching numerous episodes of Downton Abbey, Parenthood, My Ghost Story, and any other scary/investigation discovery show I could find on Hulu & Netflix. Uuum, have y’all seen Escaping Evil: My Life In A Cult?!?
Anywho, I suppose I could say, “Oh that sucked so much, I just hate being so sick that I can do nothing but wallow in our king size bed all day watching hours and hours of Teen Mom 2 while bald eagles and ospreys fly over the sound right outside our bedroom window b/c I just can’t stand not being cooped up in the office wah, wah, wah”, but…yeah…the truth is?
I was sick as shiz y’all and, though I’m sorry I had to take such a long break and I even missed my one year blog-i-versary, I really, really needed to get myself well.
So this funk completely knocked out my sense of taste and smell which made me completely lose my appetite. When I did start finally wanting food again, I wanted super sugary, highly processed cereals (crunch berries, anyone?!?) or sour things like pickles and vinegary salads because that totally makes sense, right? :/
My husband had randomly picked up a bag of Meyer lemons from the grocery store and all I could think about was how well lemon and basil went together. Y’all all know how much I love fruity dressings so, clearly, a dressing was to be born.
This dressing is absolutely to die for and is the perfect way to gear your taste buds up and get them ready for spring. I originally ate it on a fancy schmancy salad with fresh blueberries and goat cheese, but then I was trolling Instagram one afternoon and ran across Jenn at Peas & Crayons amazeballs recipe for her Confetti Pasta Salad, and I about flipped my balls. Haven’t made it yet? Do.it.
Mind= blown again.
