I just love this store. They have healthier alternatives to foods that I love, they carry lots of organic items, great produce and the prices are very reasonable! So we came home with fresh mozarella, fresh basil, extra long spaghetti (fun), whole grain sour dough bread, a few boxes of Quinoa, sweet Italian sausage, some great balsamic vinegar.....there may have been more, but let's get to the yummy pictures!
Hannah has been helping so much in the kitchen and today was no different. She got right in there and started putting the sauce together. I buy Prego with mushroom and then we add stuff to it. She cooked up the ground beef and the sausages. I put the salad together. It's so easy and tastes great. I remember eating this salad in Italy!
Fresh Mozarella (I buy the kind in water)
Fresh Basil (chopped)
Fresh Heirloom or Grape Tomatoes
Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Mix all ingredients and serve. You can chill it first, but I can't ever wait. =]
Dad was very happy when he came home to this (as you can imagine). I had to think of my friend Miriam (Hi Miriam!!). She loves bread and pasta and would've loved it. I will call her next time. LOL
Taryn is determined to get some more blog time, so she asked if she could do some baking this weekend - that's her "thing". Don't worry, I'll keep you posted! ;0)
