Missionaries and a Yummy Salad

We had the missionaries over this last Friday night, did you know? They were adorable boys that made me feel really old. Was 19 that long ago? I love the opportunity to make a big production of dinner. Honestly, who doesn't love to create delicious food? I served my favorite go-to salad found here and rocky road brownies that were to die for. Oh did I mention the margarita pizza? I LOVE margarita pizza, it's the only kind that I really like to eat. Nothing beats fresh mozzarella, tomatos and basil leaves. The smell of basil is euphoric. As we were eating I noticed one of the Elders picking his tomatos off. The tomatos are a key component in the triad of caprese ingredients, but I wasn't about to tell him that. He then picked a basil leaf off and ate it alone. Hmmmmm. "What kind of leaf is this?" he inquired. Then we all laughed. I made a mental note that 19 year old boys, although adorable, don't appreciate tomatos or leaves on their pizza. I will leave you with this picture of my lunch today, that was in fact inspired by this post.
