Random July Pictures and Yummy Yummy Goodness

I haven't been so good about posting, but rest assured - we've been busy (and I've actually remembered my camera for most of the outings!). The girls and I have been enjoying a down day today, so I will take the opportunity of having Emily asleep and Ava embroiled in a letter writing worksheet to post some random pictures from the past few weeks:

And now onto the Yummy Yummy Goodness...

Summer Pasta

From Pasta Fresca by Viana La Place and Evan Kleinman


5 large tomatoes, seeded and diced small

2 garlic cloves, minced

1/4 cup fresh basil, shredded

salt and pepper to taste

1-1 1/2 cups good quality extra virgin olive oil

1 pound spaghetti

6 ounces fresh mozarella, packed in water, diced


Combine first four ingredients in a large bowl, pour enough olive oil to cover. Let marinate at room temperature 1-3 hours. Cook and drain pasta, according to package directions. Add mozarella to bowl, quickly add pasta and stir to combine and to melt cheese. Devour.
