The rest of Saturday looked like an episode of Leave it to the Beaver. I was a true June Cleaver in my A-line plaid dress, underneath a ruffled floral apron, serving Husband fresh squeezed lemonade. (Don't let that fool you, Husband has cooked just about every dinner over the past month.) I guess I was a bit over due for some kitchen time because I went a bit crazy in that apron.
Banana Ice Cream
Next, I turned some of our basil leaves into fresh pesto. We used it on our shrimp tortellini. I mixed 2 cups of basil, 1/4 cup of olive oil, a bit of Parmesan cheese, salt and pepper in the food processor. I don't think we will ever spend money on the jarred stuff again. This was way too easy! *Kicking myself for not doing this sooner...
Pesto is the Besto!
Key Lime Cupcakes!
Sunday, Husband and I drove an hour to another Bavarian town called Landshut. Every four years the entire town participates in a renaissance parade. It originally started as a celebration of the King's marriage and is still a top tradition to this modern day. The entire parade lasts for nearly two hours and people line the streets hours beforehand to get the perfect spot. We loved the costumes, old age instruments, acrobats, horses, knights, singing, and crowd participation yelling "HALLOoooo!"
We are loving the summertime and are hard at work making the most of it. Are you out creating new memories? I would love to hear!
It's Been Real Swell,
