Romaine Salad with Bacon, 5-Minute Eggs, and Creamy Garlic Anchovy Dressing

Last Saturday night, I had one of those rare moments to myself.  Walter was off playing with Alex and Rob, a friend of ours, and I had the kitchen to myself at dinner prep time.  It was a bit late, but we had had chai and snacks with friends in the late afternoon and no one was particularly hungry yet.  So I got to cook, by myself in my own little cooking trance.  It was delightful.  Then afterwards, I cleaned up the kitchen so that it was in this shiny, spotless state where I just want to come back in the next morning and create tasty things (this is not my kitchen’s usual state).  It was a housewify zen of sorts.  I went to bed feeling quite fulfilled and content.  

I got ambitious and tried a new recipe from Dash and Bella.  Her writing is intense and fantastic and so I admit that I was a bit scared to try her recipes.  However, her Romaine Salad with Bacon, 5-Minute Eggs, and Creamy Garlic Anchovy Dressing sounded very doable.  Let me tell you, it was fantastic.  The dressing was so tasty that I ate the leftovers out of my measuring cup with a piece of baguette as the delivery device.  Besides, it has bacon, and you really can’t go wrong with bacon.
