(This picture is part of an 18-picture salad recipe. Start the recipe here!)

If you have some herbs or spices that you feel go well in a salad, add them now. I use some Italian herb seasoning which you can buy in any grocery store or supermarket, and comes in a little bottle. If you can find bottles or bags of Salad Mix, you’re even better off.

Add your spices of choice, if any, to the salad and then add, in this order, the balsamic vinegar, the white wine vinegar and the olive oil.

For the vinegars, hold your thumb on the opening and just drip each on there a little. If you like your food a bit spicier and more acidic, add some more of the vinegars.

A regular ratio between oils and vinegar is: 6 parts oil, 1 part balsamic and 1 part white wine vinegar.

What I do myself: 4-5 parts oil, 1 part balsamic and 1 part white wine vinegar. I don’t like to drown the salad in olive oil and have that dominate the taste, and I don’t want the salad to taste a little dry either.

If there’s any challenge at all in making this salad, it would be the ratio between oil and vinegars. This, ultimately, makes or breaks the flavor and overall quality of the salad. Fortunately, experimentation leads to experience, so just pay attention to how much you use each and learn from every time you make the salad.

Sunday evening. Mrs.Thomas is prepping food for the week and I’m looking at Flickr. She’s sick, so I guess that makes me a slacker.

Aunt Edith’s Banana Bread Recipe

Aunt Edith’s Banana Bread
Stays moist a week

1/2 cup shortening or butter
1 cup white sugar
2 eggs
2 very ripe bananas
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
2 cups flour (no more)
1 cup chopped walnuts

Cream together shortening and sugar. Add eggs and mix well. Mash in bananas. Combine flour, baking soda and salt (cut back or eliminate salt if using salted butter instead of shortening) and mix into wet ingredients. Stir in walnuts. Bake in a well-greased loaf pan at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 60-70 minutes or until top is very brown and any cracks in the top are fairly dry inside.

The original recipe had you prepare the loaf pan by greasing it, lining it with waxed paper and greasing the waxed paper. Then when the loaf was done, you removed it from the pan and peeled off the paper. At some point I just stopped doing that and began to grease the pan directly and the results have been fine. I don’t really know why that seemed like a necessary step back in the day, but I merely mention it as a curiosity.
