On a lighter note...I love making Red Wine Vinaigrette in a mason jar because it looks so pretty. I made a salad for Dad's birthday dinner. It is so simple and so delicious. It is just spring mix lettuce with strawberries, walnuts, Colby Jack cheese and this salad dressing. It paired perfectly with the Salmon that was sooooo yummy.
We got Dad a few dark chocolate bars from Ikea and some of their blueberry jam. We also bought him a book (it was from mom too). It is The Complete C.S. Lewis Signature Collection. He had admired my copy when they were at our house for dinner on Mothers Day so we though it would be the perfect gift. Aunt Sheila got him a book of chocolate recipes and she made him chocolate truffles. Mom got him a a little American flag treasure book and sign for his man cave that says, "I Pray For America" on it.
Don't worry his face isn't on fire.
I have two pictures of the day for May 14th. This one that we will name: "For the pure joy of dark chocolate".
And this one. It doesn't really need a name. Happy 68th birthday Dad! We love you! But we hate snakes.
