A Beautiful Summer Night

What a great night! Beautiful ride on White Bear Lake, only a little rain, great food, great company, great sound track, great Crissy doll, and then an amazing treat at Admirals after the tour. After running into TJ and Billy Mac we were treated to a world class, classical guitar concert, by Francesco Buzzurro. (His tickets typically range from $60- $400 and sell out almost immediately, we got in on our good looks!) Every once in awhile you luck out and stumble into the presence of greatness, and that was our fortune tonight. He has played at the Metropolitan Opera, and Classical Music Halls all over the world, and tonight he was under an oak, overlooking beautiful (well okay nearly dry and swampy) White Bear Lake, with a fiberglass parrot holding a Corona, swinging over his head! Poetry! But Oh man could he play! Francessco Buzzurro Born in Taormina in 1969, Francesco Buzzurro started to play guitar at the age of 6. He graduated at the Conservatory of Trapani. As a classical guitarist he won three national competitions. At the moment he is the leader of a quartet and plays at the most important Italian festivals. Checkout the link below!

Kate, here's the Margurita Salsa Salad recipe. (For the amount last night which was 8 cups)

1-1/2 cups frozen corn
1 can black beans well rinsed
4 medium tomatoes diced
TBS Coriander (or 2TBS fresh Cilantro can be used)
1/2 cup fresh Basil (or 2 TBS dry)
handful parsley
salt/pepper to taste
1/2 cup olive oil

Mix every thing together. (If it is too "wet" drain some of the juices and oil out)

after everything is mixed add 2 cups shredded Mozz
