A Lovely Saturday

We only have four more days until Camden heads back to school, so yesterday we headed to Boise to scratch a couple more items off our 'summer fun' list (more about that, later). Camden loves, LOVES a good museum, and he's been wanting to go to the Idaho Historical Museum for a long time. I'm so glad we did it ~ it was wonderful! The boys had a great time and the weather was great. They have also always wanted to eat at Burger King (not sure how they got that in their heads, but a commercial on t.v., I am sure), so we accomplished that, as well. When we got home, we had a relaxing evening and a little swimming in the pool. Can't believe that by this time next week, we'll be back to the grind of the school year.

My garden is bursting at the seams these past couple of weeks, and this has been my standard dinner. Bright red tomatoes, fresh mozzarella, a drizzle of pesto (made from the basil I grew earlier this summer), and some Udi's gluten-free bread on the side. Yum. I think today I am going to roast some more of the tomatoes and freeze some more pizza sauce.

A near perfect day, I would say.

We eat the same salad lately. Only difference...a drizzle of olive and fresh ground pepper along with fresh chopped basil. yummy. Am using the pesto on my grilled veggie pizza. Love it much more than tomato sauce.

Tonight I am making watermelon salad with basil and feta. Sound good?

So glad that you had a nice trip to the museum. It is hard to believe that school is right around the corner. Be sure to post some 1st day of school photos for those of us far away!

So nice! I love the diversity between Camden's love of museums, and his desire for a Burger King dining experience!

Susan my basil plants are long gone, and my local store was out of fresh basil, hence, the pesto. It was so good that I've continued to eat it that way. Yum. The watermelon salad sounds delish...will have to try that. I love feta cheese!

Emily, I will most definitely be posting some pictures of the first day...can't believe it is almost here!

Nicky you are funny...I hadn't thought of that! You would have thought they were on their way to a five-star dining experience, they were so excited. Ha!
