Monday Madness

It’s (almost) back to normal here – Blogging 101 has ended, Women of Faith is over, Stonecroft planning meeting done. Hubby still congested from sinusitis, but on the mend. It’s time for -da, da daaaaaaa! Monday Madness!

Yes, this will be my new featured post each Monday. Now you can plan ahead to come and read what’s happening (or you can duck and cover- whichever. I won’t tell.) The results of the poll that I posted last week are a split decision, so this feature will have a split personality. Oh, well, no one’s perfect. So, here we go!

Today, I am going to share with you two simple recipes I created this summer while my friends and I are learning about The Daniel Plan for healthy eating. Enjoy!

Simple Salad Dressing – about 51 calories per serving

1 tablespoon olive oil
2 tablespoons cider vinegar
2 tablespoons water
1 tablespoon agave nectar
1 teaspoon chia seeds
1 ounce fresh or 1 teaspoon dried cilantro
Combine all ingredients, and shake well. Makes approximately 4 servings.

Next, do you have too many blueberries? Then try making this topping for waffles, potato latkes, pancakes, etc.

Blueberry Topping – approximately 8 servings, 31 calories per.

1 pint blueberries
2 ounces apple cider or apple juice
Place in a 2-3 cup saucepan, bring to a boil, and cook for about 5-6 minutes, or until thickened. Place in airtight container, and store in the refrigerator. Yum.
