You guys, I’m SO glad you’re here! This week was ridiculawzzz! <— (I’m trying to stay on the edge of cool. I saw that spelling on my little cousin’s Facebook Page. She’s 14. That’s how high-schoolers talk diz dayz).

So. I need about a bottle of wine for each day to get over this cray cray week.

Just so you know what I’m talking about; I was at the pediatrician’s five times in 7 days. It involved a baby, a splinter, a removing of splinter, and an ear infection.

Didn’t I say it was ridiculous!

But, all is well now. Thank goodness! Um… Where’s the cognac? Bottle of wine may not work…

Roasted Veg Diethood Roasted Vegetable Salad

Making this Roasted Vegetable Salad came more as a, we need something damn delicious and quick, during that whole chaos. Few days prior, I went to the market and bought a ton of fruits and veggies. Seriously, a ton is not an exaggeration. I don’t know when to stop when I go to the farmer’s market. All those beautiful colors make me slaphappy! I can’t help but buy every.thing.

Then, I come home and roast everything in sight. Or grill. Depending on the day’s mood. This day it was raining out, so I roasted most of the veg that was taking space in my fridge.

And then, I did this thing… I made the best freakin’ honey mustard dressing that I have ever made. The Best. Honestly. This stuff is amaaaaze! I could, like, hang with it all day and just sip on it. Really, you should just print this salad dressing recipe and put it up on your fridge. You’ll need it for every salad that you are going to make this summer.

    That is my kind of salad! I’m like that when I go to a farmer’s market too, I get all bug-eyed and buy practically everything in sight!

    I’m so out of the loop on the way kids are talking these days – thanks for the crash course.

    This salad looks super-delish! :D

    Glad the splinter and ear infection turned out ok! (Hope that one was not a result of the other!)

    This salad looks very colorful–nice job!

    I’m with you on splinters. I can handle so many other aspects of humanity (I’m trying to be polite about pee, poop, and puke) but I cannot deal with splinters. I turn into a big fat baby if I get one or if I try and get one out of anyone else. It’s funny–I can remove stitches or staples no prob . . . but a splinter? Eeew!
