When we first moved out to the country I knew it would be a challenge to get the items and the things I like. I just didn’t know how hard.
It’s really funny the things you miss. I never went out to eat much but miss grabbing a salad at Panera or at the salad bar at the local market. I really miss the variety of salad dressing.
That was when I started making my own. I needed variety for a reasonable price.
