Live Long and Prosper


Today is another rainy gloomy day here in the big city. Yesterday was a gorgeous sunny day, perfect spring day. To brighten up the day, I thought I'd post this lovely caprese salad we like to eat on the hot days of summer. It's a simple salad to make, and yet tastes delicious and makes a great impression. Only 6 ingredients. Fresh mozzarella, basil, tomatoes, olive oil, balsamic vinegar, salt and pepper. Delightful!!

Oh, and dad bean and I went to see Star Trek yesterday in the movie theaters. Oh My Goodness, it was soooo amazing. The best Star Trek movie ever! For all those trekkie fans out there, it's one not to be missed. It is very much a modern take on the old series, but a fun insight on how the Enterprise crew came to be.

My humans saw the show last weekend. The Male loved it. The Woman liked it. She still thinks Whales in Space was her favorite...

I liked how you didn't have to be a Trekkie to enjoy the movie. And you weren't completly clueless either!

Thanks for the Star Trek thumbs up! Now to find a place where it might be playing somewhere in rural France in ENGLISH, rather than dubbed into French... Sigh....

That's my favorite salad of all time...mmm, yummy!

We saw the movie too, and thoroughly enjoyed it. I wasn't sure how I'd feel seeing new actors playing all my old favorite characters, but I thought they did a great job and fell in love with them all over again. Bones was my favorite!

That salad looks so good. We love getting dinner ideas reading your posts about delicious food.
Our Dad has watched Star Trek before but our mom never did. They both LOVED the movie though.

My mommy loves making those! She grows tomatoes and basil in her garden and always buys fresh mozzarella for it.

I too like the fresh mozzarella. mmmm

Sorry about your mommy's wallet. that sux. If they find who did it, Bendrix is happy to go shread his/her legs for you.
