The little things

Tonight we had a simple dinner.  We ate baked chicken breast (seasoned with garlic salt and Kirkland's organic no salt seasoning) on top of romaine lettuce, lots of veggies, feta cheese, and homemade honey mustard dressing.  We also had whole grain artisan bread with garlic butter.  As simple as tonight's dinner was, it still had special touches.  The garlic butter instead of plain butter is such an easy way to make the bread so much more flavorful.  For the garlic butter I minced three cloves of garlic and squished them with a fork until it became almost like a paste.  Then I added about four tablespoons of  room temperature butter, mixed it up and slathered it on the bread.  Also, there is nothing better than homemade dressing, it's easy to make and I like that I know every ingredient and can control the amount of salt and sugar I add to my meal.

Honey Mustard salad dressing:
4 tablespoons olive oil
1 1/2 tablespoons white wine vinegar
2 tablespoons brown mustard
2 tablespoons honey
salt and pepper to taste

Whisk together and viola, homemade salad dressing!


  1. I'm wondering if Agave Syrup would be too sweet if I made this, hmmmmmm. I've been looking for a simple honey mustard dressing.

  2. Yummy! Thanks for sharing! A pic of the final product would be lovely! I am so glad to have one of your dressing recipes now and I look forward to more in the future.
    And I always overcook chicken breasts. How did you cook them in the oven?
    Thanks for sharing!
    Oh yeah, please post a link to your friend's blog so we can see what recipes you posted over there!
    Love, Heather

  3. Salina, I think agave would be fine, just add a little less, mix it up and dunk a piece of lettuce in it to taste.

    Heather, I actually took a picture of the end result, but I'm not very good at food photography and it didn't look very appetizing. I cooked the chicken (actually Hank did) at 375 degrees for 25 minutes.
