We are struggling with the drought this summer, but thanks to so many dedicated and hard working small farms in the area, we are still able to get fresh veggies at our local farm stands and farmer's markets. Here is an easy salad using some of my summertime favorites along with basil from the garden.
Red and Yellow Cherry Tomatoes
Kalamata Olives - pitted
Fresh Mozzarella Cheese
Halve cherry tomatoes and Kalamata olives, cube avocado and mozzarella cheese and add all to bowl. Chop fresh basil and add to bowl. Drizzle a small amount of olive oil over all, toss gently and sprinkle with flake salt and fresh ground black pepper. Adjust all amounts to your taste.

This dress cookie cutter is from Copper Gifts. They have great quality copper cookie cutters and a huge selection of shapes for any occasion.
I brushed silver dust on the gray frosting for the rings and sprinkled white and pink sugar on the jewels - doesn't show up very well on the photo!

Had the "BEES" over for lunch a couple of weeks ago. We're a group of friends that have been getting together for years and I thought it would be fun to go with the black and yellow decor for lunch. Everyone got a little jar of local honey as a take home favor.
The centerpiece complete with chocolate "cake pop" bees....
And a cute bunting decoration using, what else, bumble bee fabric.... I had to make a mini bunting to match!
And one of the girls brought each of us a yummy home made banana pudding with meringue topping baked in these cute little mason jars....so yummy!!!
What a sweet day spent with friends!!!
