Easy Lemon Tahini Dressing
Happy Friday! I thought that Fridays wouldn’t matter to me as much when I was working from home but let me tell: I still LOVE Fridays! While I enjoy the hell out of the work that I do, I also enjoy a nice day of relaxing, cooking just for fun, and spending time with Mr. Britnell.
This weekend we’re traveling a few hours away to celebrate Stephen’s nephew’s 1st birthday (yay!). The rest of the weekend will be spent (finally) beginning baby Britnell’s nursery! We’re planning to keep it pretty simple. I ordered the crib this morning and we’ll be painting the walls soon. I have my eyes on a really beautiful fiddle leaf fig tree at the farmer’s market because what nursery is complete without a giant tree!? (that’s sarcasm but I love all the house plants).
I’ve been doing my best to eat healthy lately. Healthy to me= having a nice hefty side salad with your 3 slices of pizza. Good balance is the key :)
I’ve also been trying to eat foods with less ingredients in them. While I love a good store bought caesar dressing (my FAVORITE actually), making my own at home sometimes is also pretty good. Like this lemon tahini dressing! It’s SUPER easy to make, unless dumping some ingredients in a jar and shaking it together is too difficult for you. And, it lasts in the fridge for a while. I’m a pretty big fan of nutritional yeast so end up with quite a bit of it in my dressings. But, you could definitely put a bit less in yours if it’s not your thing.
That’s it for today! We like to keep it short and sweet around here on Fridays so that (maybe) the weekend will get here a bit sooner :) Hope it’s a good one, friends!Print
