Happy Memorial Day Weekend! I hope that you all had a great weekend! I went to the California Delta with the boyfriend and his fam. Post to come later. What did you all do?

How to make Strawberry Caprese Pasta

For the previous four memorial day weekends, I have gone to the Arroyo Grande Strawberry Weekend. It is a fun-filled weekend of food, sun, vendors, and of course strawberries. One year my friends and I decided to throw a strawberry festival after-party. We had strawberry shortcake, chocolate dipped strawberries, and of course strawberry margaritas.

I love flip flops, shorts, and tank tops as much as the next girl, but my true summer passion is tomatoes. I literally jump for joy when the heirlooms arrive. The gnarled edges and beautiful colors scream summer in my eyes. Nothing beats a perfect heirloom tomato. Add some salt, olive oil, and a thick slice of sourdough bread, and I call that lunch. And as embarrassing as it is, I professed my love for a home grown tomato on my first date with Ryan. Only later did I realize how awkward that conversation probably was.

Cinco de Mayo is right around the corner, and what better way to celebrate than with some delicious, creamy guacamole. I have had a long love affair with guacamole. It is like a forbidden fruit, but surprisingly healthy. Hello, WINNER!

Now I feel like guacamole might also be one of those foods like peanut butter where people are either avid creamy fans or avid crunchy/chunky fans. I am a chunky fan. The perfect bite is when you get all of the little chunks on your tortilla chip.
