(13) Dinner with the Matics (it’s really my last name) (BONUS 14)

House Dressings
When my daughter and siblings were younger, we all used to get together (myself, McKay, Kariel, My Mom, Dad, Matt, Mike Otto, and Paris) for dinner, play games or watch a movie afterward. Everyone’s beyond their teens now, but McKay and I still hang with the parents most Friday nights and now that my grandma is here, she joins us, too. Occasionally one of the other youngers join us.
Last night we had Costco lasagna, store-mixed Luleh Kabob, Rice and Salad – I made Dressings for the salad (incidentally – we also tried using our DirecTV Movies on Demand feature and it took SOOOO LONG to download – when we finished watching an hour-long show, it was still at 30%!).
It’s pretty much the same recipe just using different kinds of vinegar and the quantities are VERY FLEX – I don’t measure it exactly and sometimes add or subtract, depending on how I feel that day… I just kinda keep tasting as I go and decide how much of what flavor I want in it while I’m making it.

Creamy Italian [substitute ingredient for Balsamic]:

  • 2-3 tbsp Italian Seasoning
  • 1.5-2c White Vinegar [balsamic vinegar]
  • 1-2tbsp honey (or sugar)
  • 4ish tbsp mayonnaise


  1. Use a Whisk or Fork to mix all the ingredients together.
  2. Chill (optional, but it’s actually a little better after it’s had time to blend its flavors some)
  3. Serve

Went to work early this morning and cleaned up my desk. Stopped in at the auto parts store to get new windshield wipers. Installed them (that was a lot more trying than I thought it would be).
Currently working on some pannier & pannier frame designs for my bike. Will post any view-worthy (is THAT presumptuous?) diagrams.
