Had a great evening last night... had my brother and his lovely wife up for dinner... lots of stories and tons of laughs... The long weekend has finally arrived... today is a deep clean of the house and then some rays on the deck ...Going to head down to Victoria to watch the boys on Saturday and then Sunday and Monday working in the garden... Now this is my kind of weekend .. really doing absolutley nothing ...

5-6 cups baby spinach leaves (about 1/2 of a 9 ounce bag)
1 cup cherry tomatoes
1/8 red onion, thinly sliced
1 (11 ounce) can mandarin oranges
1 (2.25 can) sliced black olives

1/4 cup extra light virgin olive oil
4 teaspoons balsamic vinegar (or more if desired)
1/4 teaspoon Dijon mustard
1 teaspoon granulated sugar
1/8 teaspoon each, salt and black pepper
Combine dressing ingredients and set aside. Combine salad ingredients in a large bowl. Pour desired amount of dressing over salad and serve immediately. You probably will have a little dressing left over, depending on how much dressing you like in your salad. Now this is good served with a grilled hamburger patty...or even better is a thick pork chop from the grill... 

Want to wish everyone a Happy BC Day ... weather is supposed to be good so for all you campers remember your sunscreen... My daughter |Andrea and her finacee Adam are heading up to Lake Cowichan to stay at a friends place so here is hoping you have a great weekend.....
