I am exhausted! Moving is way too much work! Seems like it has been weeks since I have not been surrounded by boxes in one way shape or form. I think I see a light at the end of the tunnel now, but it is still a long tunnel. My in laws get here tonight, and then we set to work on painting and hanging ceiling fans. Getting my sons room painted will be a huge step in the right direction. Then we will actually be able to unpack and set up his room. Right now he is wall to wall boxes with a mattress on the floor.
You didn’t come here to listen to me complain, so I will move on. Vinaigrette! I love vinaigrette’s. Whenever we go to a restaurant all I want to know is what kind of vinaigrette dressing they have. I don’t like thick and creamy dressings, so I enjoy playing around with different flavors in vinaigrette’s. This uses the fresh basil in my garden, and delicious sun-dried tomatoes.
I used this as a marinade and then a sauce for grilled chicken, and it was wonderful. My husband loves balsamic vinegar, so he picked that out immediately. I will be making this again, it was a big hit on the chicken! There was a tiny bit left that I had on a salad the next day too. This might be the first jar of sun-dried tomatoes that I have purchased, I am not sure why it has taken me so long to use them!
- 1/4 cup sun-dried tomatoes, , chopped
- 3 Tbls balsamic vinegar
- 1 Tbls red wine vinegar
- 2 cloves garlic, , chopped
- 1/2 tsp salt

To use for marinade - pour 1/2 the vinaigrette into a sealable plastic bag. Add 1 pound chicken, and let sit in the fridge for 1-2 hours. Grill chicken. Brush remaining vinaigrette over the chicken to serve. Adapted from Epicurious
