Tomato Pistachio Mozzarella Salad

I really felt like having a nice lunch with myself so I made this beautiful light salad just in time for the kick off of summer.  I originally wanted to call it Half Assed Tomato Mozzarella Salad but my inner voice told me not too.  This is the same voice that tells me it’s OK to stalk the guy at the deli.  I really need to find new personalities.

Strawberry Shortcake with Cinnamon and Basil Ice Cream

Strawberry shortcake though delicious does not tempt me on a dessert menu.  I had a friend once tell me never to order strawberry shortcake off a menu.  They said it is a way restaurants get rid of fruit, especially fruit that is going bad.  I myself don’t believe this, however,  I personally wouldn’t order a strawberry shortcake at a restaurant.
