and for the life of me, i can not conceive of anything more appropriate to do with fresh basil than make

Basil Pesto

here's my official recipe:
2 cups of fresh basil
1/3 cup pine nuts
3 cloves garlic

all mashed up in the food processor

drizzle in olive oil until pesto-y (my official term)
add salt, pepper and parmesan cheese to taste

they mingle and mix, and this beautiful combination finds its way to my plate

Little Bear had FOUR helpings. Four. She only weighs 23 lbs.

of course, for the meat eaters in the family, googiedaddy provided some additional nourishment.

sirloin stuffed with horseradish cheddar and wrapped with bacon, all from the local Amish market.
