Creamy Ranch Dressing
We are still in recovery mode from storms that hit last weekend. Our home was without power for four days and we do not own a generator yet, which means not only was I unable to blog but the oppressive heat made cooking unbearable and the thought of eating was mostly undesirable.
No power also means I lost every perishable food item.
No carefully frozen strawberries for smoothies. No gallons of chicken stock that boiled on the stove for 10 hours until it was delicious, thick, chicken-flavored gelatin. No grass-fed milk for my coffee (that one was the real sore spot).
So now, I'm cleaning up and thinking how I'm going to rebuild my precious food stores when the continuing 100+ degree temperatures make thoughts of cooking less than wonderful.
Before all this craziness and heat, I was thinking about Ranch dressing. I was considering the components and decided to do a little research and see if there were any Paleo recipes out there. Are there ever! One Paleo site I really admire is Mark's Daily Apple. He posts recipes, exercise, and general Paleo living info. His recipe for Creamy Ranch Dressing looks easy and delicious. So, rather than repeating his recipe here, you can check out his post instead.
I'm going to eat some cold salad and try to beat this heat!
