We Gardners have a bit of a reputation when it comes to salad dressing. We have a lot of it. I've even been called the Salad Dressing Queen. Joshua brings home various dressings and sauces from work so we have quite a variety of dressings to serve when people come over for dinner. We bring dressings when we are invited to someone else's house. We even give it away as gifts.
So today I felt inspired to find out exactly how many bottles of dressings, dips, sauces, syrups, and marinades that we currently have in our home. The final count is... 49.
And that's not counting the four dressing-sized bottles of cooking wine that Joshua brought home or the bottle of salted Tequila (yes, that is an ingrediant in some marinades.)
I sometimes wonder what sort of impact this will have on our children as they grow up.
"Daddy, Sarah's family only had two bottles of dressing with dinner! Isn't that silly?"
"Mommy, why don't my friends eat their dressing by the spoonful like we do?"
Ah, well, we've never been normal in any other part of life- why should our condiments be any different?
