First Funny Friday

Today’s post is the first of what will be a monthly feature here. It’s called Funny Friday and is a collaborative project that I’ll post on the last Friday of every month. Each month one of the participants submits a picture, then we all write 5 captions or thoughts inspired by that month’s picture. Links to the other bloggers’ posts are below, click on them and see what they’ve come up with. I hope we bring a smile to your face as you start your weekend.

Funny Friday - Baking In A Tornado
Here’s today’s picture. It was submitted by Confessions of a part-time working mom.

Funny Friday -  Confessions of a part-time working mom

1. Floor to the jar: "Ouch. What the hell did I ever do to you?"

2. Wife to hubs: “Does this fall under the five second rule?”

3. Cook to the jar: “Well, the Wright brothers didn’t necessarily do so well on their first try either.”

4. Cook to the jar: “You may have escaped the pan but I’m not sure you’re going to like the garbage can any better.”

5. Jar to the cook: “I’ve fallen . . . and I can’t get up.”

NOTE: I most often use this dressing on a Spinach Salad, and my Spinach Salad generally consists of whatever I have in my fridge and pantry that looks appealing. The salad pictured above includes fresh spinach, chopped scallions, sliced strawberries, blueberries, mandarin orange, hard boiled egg, croutons and sunflower seeds.
 
Ingredients:
¼ cup apple cider vinegar
¼ cup red wine vinegar
¼ cup sugar
3 TBSP honey
1 TBSP sweet hot mustard (can substitute dijon or stone ground mustard if you prefer)
¼ tsp salt
1 – 2 TBSP poppy seeds
½ cup olive oil
 
Directions:
*Whisk together all of the ingredients except the olive oil.
*While vigorously whisking, slowly add the olive oil. Continue to whisk another 30 seconds.
*Store unused dressing in the refrigerator

  20. I missed this first time. Sounds like a great dressing. I have some 4th chicken left over. Wouldn't that be a nice dressing over chicken and greens from the garden?
