Caprese Salad and Other Pics From the Week

Caprese Salad...a staple to my summer diet. I start eating this in August for lunch, and literally eat it every day for lunch right through October. Heirloom tomatoes, freshly picked basil, buffalo mozarella. The flavors blend in a way that just makes you enjoy every bite. We make it by the platterful. Lately I have been drizzing it with Cains Naturally delicious Balsamic. Perfect. Nothing like building up your lycopene for a healthy immune system!

In other new...A few nature sightings this week:
This cicada was taking a siesta on our stairs.
..and apparently I interrrupted this snakes siesta as I was watering some flowers...he does not look happy with me.

  1. Your caprese salad looks delicious! And eeek! Good job snapping a pic of the snake! I don't think I'd be able to keep that much composure.

  2. Salad looks delish...Just read a few of your prior posts and a I am also a teacher (originally from the So Shore area in MA) and a few years ago I went to Japan on a Fulbright - they "pickled" their radishes - and they tasted just like pickles!! And I agree with you about getting "down" at this time of the summer...I am already getting anxious about having to wake up early, writing lesson plans and being challenged daily by adolescents!! But I am lucky because I see the light at the end of the tunnel and plan to retire next year or the year after!! Enjoy the last few weeks of summer!

  4. Oh my gosh did you die when you saw that snake? I would have freaked. Your caprese looks delish, love how you platter it. I've been making nut-less pesto with my basil this summer and drizzling it on caprese.....so good.!
