Because Sometimes We're Fancy

Going out to a restaurant is such a treat for me.  I LOVE those occasions where I don't have to plan a dinner, prepare it, serve it, and then clean up after it.  Unfortunately, going out to a good Italian restaurant (my favorite) is usually a spendy affair and therefore becomes a rare event.

One thing that I adore about some restaurants is the little bottles of olive oil and balsamic vinegar they put out on the table to dip bread in.  It is a nice break from butter and is kinder on the waistline.  Feeling inspired, I bought a couple of bottles to dispense my own oil and vinegar at home.  And while I still have to go through the trouble of making a dinner most of the time, dipping my bread in these gorgeous condiments can make a meal special ... even fancy.

Only you would manage to have the levels of the liquids symmetrical. Interesting subtle pattern showing through.

I'm almost ashamed to admit that it bothers me that the levels of liquid aren't EXACTLY equal.

SUCH a good idea.
