our first official "bounty" from
googie garden 2010
and for the life of me, i can not conceive of anything more appropriate to do with fresh basil than make
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
you would not believe how this smells
it meets the pasta...
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.
word around the dinner table was that it was pretty good stuff.
but i'll stick with the pesto, thankyouverymuch
