Swell

Duncan got a mosquito bite on his eye yesterday and his eye is almost swollen shut. We're giving him Benadryl and some cold compresses to ease the swelling. He looks so pathetic!

Last night I wasn't in the mood for leftover pasta with pesto, so I suggested adding bacon to it. Tina suggested making a bacon salad dressing to top a spinach salad instead. I'm glad we did, it was delicious: Cook 6 slices of chopped bacon until all the fat is rendered, reserve the crisped meat and cook a crushed garlic clove with about 1/4 cup of chopped onion (shallots would be best) until tender, then add 1/2 cup cider vinegar and 1 tbsp ketchup and salt and pepper to taste. Boil to reduce and then pour hot over 1 pound of raw spinach. Add the bacon bits. We found a hard-boiled egg completed the salad. Delicious!

Plus, I just put up pictures from Grandma and Grandpa's visit on the main page.
