strawberry and spinach salad

This is a quick and yummy salad. I'm sorry I don't have an exact recipe.
baby spinach
sliced strawberries
For vinegrette:
2 T olive oil
1 T cider vinegar
 couple dashes paprika
couple dashes onion powder
bit of sugar
1/4 t salt
fresh ground black pepper
If I had them I would use some chopped green onion.
Whisk vinegrette well in big bowl,
add strawberries and spinach,
toss and serve.
If you want to throw a sliced hard boiled egg on there, it's a nice addition.
Sorry about the inexactness of the recipe. I am only precise with measurements when baking.
It's a fabulously sunny day here in Lancaster.

a bit of snow...

 We are impressed that dd7 was able to make a snowman the size of her, with the little snow we got this morning.
 Notice, she built him on the driveway-lol.

 I don't know another child who goes through snow pants the way she does. Every year, it doesn't matter if I buy a better brand or not. She plays hard and goes right through the knees.
Hope you are having a great day!

Oh play-doh, I love you!!!
The very first thing to keep her attention for any significant time period.
I decided to bring the last dresser from my living room down to the space at Building Character. Here is another similarly painted one I thought I would keep for home. The other dresser sold in a day and half (yeah!) so this one will go down today to fill the space.
 I really like the detail on this one.

 The greenhouse is showing signs of life...

 Hubby has a gazillion onion plants going.
There is nothing like fresh onions from the garden, oh yum, can't wait.
