Recipe Link

Ok, I thought I set up the last post with a link to the recipe, but I must have done it wrong, so just click here: Tomato Mozzarella Basil Recipe and hopefully it will work this time.

Tomato Mozzarella Basil Tart

I have come to realize that those 3 things (tomatoes, mozzarella and basil) make the most delicious edibles. Add some garlic, olive oil and salt & pepper and you really can't go wrong. My good friend and cooking kindred spirit, Alexis, and I made this dish yesterday and pretty much ate the whole thing. It was AAAAMMAAAAZZing! It's not super labor intensive but it does take some time because you have to chill the dough for an hour but it is so worth it. You've got to try it!

End of Summer Fun

Liz and I and the kids had a blast at Northwest Trek near Eatonville. We went on a cool, cloudy morning so all the animals were out. It was amazing!
"Oh, rise and shout..." These cougars were huge.

Summer Recap - Part 2 (July 4th, 2009)

Firecracker Triathlon Group, from left to right: Lance, Mom, Dad, Lauren, Adam and Amy. This event was so much fun! I totally want to do it again, but hopefully with a different bike. :) Check out Adam's sweet ride!

My supportive family

These guys are the real competitors! They each came in 4th place for the men and women's groups. I love how they totally get into it. Good job, Adam and Lauren!

Our evening activities were held at Nelson's and Cramer's awesome neighborhood. Adam bought some killer, slightly illegal fireworks for the occasion. And Liz painted everyone's fingernails, even Rhett and Jacob's. Thanks, Liz :)

Cute Cousins!

As you can see, Jacob really enjoyed the festive cupcakes. Let's count how many Jacob ate...

Here's Cupcake #1

Check out this pensive look. "Do I want to try a sparkler?"

"Oh ya, this is great!"
