For “Sister Weekend” I made use of a few items I found in my freezer. A pie shell and peppered bacon made the cut. I had a ton of fresh basil and summer squash from a friends garden, add some cheese and WHAM! you have a quiche fit for a king…or a sister.

We had our annual Arts and Wine festival this weekend and I found a Coconut and Lime balsamic vinegar that pulled a gun on me. It MADE me buy it. I swear. So I thought, since I have this balsamic I may as well put it to good use. So I brushed it on this pretty little salmon filet and paired it with an angel hair pasta loaded with tomato, fresh mozzarella and SO MUCH basil. A little olive oil and we had magic.

Summer begs for barely cooked veggies and food on the go. While I’m looking forward to the Fall I will miss all the fresh tomatoes!
