The Saga of Pesto

Dear Ashley,

Once upon a time, there was a large pot of Basil.

It was in desperate need of a haircut. So it got one.

The trimmings were gathered in a bucket, that was conveniently also a salad spinner.

The leaves were pulled off the stems...

(and the formatting was screwed up by blogger) And a little less than half the leaves were combined with other delicious ingredients like pine nuts, garlic, cheese, and olive oil and pulverized.

Finally, the now mostly-liquid green stuff was cooked with pasta and veggies, and served with a lovely Pinot Grigio.

It was totally yummy, and a good time was had by all.


PS- I had such a good time in the city, and I'm so glad you like your hat! Next time, I'll be hopefully updating you on an almost finished novel :D
