Vinigraitte - 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar, 1/4 cup olive oil, 1tsp dijon mustard, 1 Tbsp honey, salt and pepper to taste. I throw everything in a mason jar and just shake it hard until its all emulsified :)

Hope you are doing well! Have a great week!

THE MOTIVATOR OF THE DAY. emoticon

I see you are dealing with diabetes. Go to YouTube and listen to Richard Bernstein M.D. give 18 lectures on diabetes. I got his book "The Diabetes Solution" from the library. 95% of his patients have Type 2 diabetes. He has had Type 1 since he's been 12 and he is a healthy 78. I've learned so much from him.
