with Missy Tippens
Last weekend, my son and daughter came home for the weekend bringing friends (his girlfriend, her roommate) with them for their first visit to our home. We had a wonderful time! I can't believe I didn't take any photos. HOWEVER I did take a couple of photos Saturday afternoon as I was cooking.
I decided to serve chicken fettuccine Alfredo, which I've shared on here before (or maybe I shared a version without chicken).
I also served a salad and decided to make homemade dressing I'd seen Ree Drummond make on Food Network.
Here's a link to the original recipe. As I'm writing the recipe here for you, I realized I forgot the garlic, the paprika and the cayenne pepper!! I knew something was missing, and even wondered about adding garlic next time. LOL Man, I guess I got distracted. So you may want to check off items as you add them. :)
1 cup real mayonnaise
1/2 cup sour cream
1/4 cup Italian flat-leaf parsley chopped
2 tablespoons fresh dill, chopped
1 tablespoon fresh chives chopped (very easy to do with kitchen scissors)
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/2 teaspoon white vinegar (I used red wine vinegar)
1/4 teaspoon paprika
1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/4 to 1/2 cup buttermilk (as needed for desired consistency)
dash of hot sauce (which I planned to leave off)
The recipe calls for mixing everything together. But I made it in the blender. It turned out nice and green!
I made the dressing ahead of time and refrigerated it in these cool new "jars" I bought--Ball Plastic Freezer Jars.
Here's the pretty green dressing on my salad. Next time I'll try making it with all the ingredients! :)
