Pesto Yes or No ?

Pine nuts, garlic, freshly grated Parmesan, olive oil and a couple of cups of basil leaves whirled in the food processor. To me it tasted like summer.

The Harvie farm box arrived on the front porch today. When I unpacked it, it was the fragrant basil that motivated me to think of pesto.

Pesto- yes or no?

Pesto Season Signals Summer

Last night a friend brought over some fragrant fresh basil from the garden.

I felt inspired.

The recipe I used called for

2 c fresh basil leaves 1/3 c pine nuts 1/2 c Romano or parmesan cheese 1/2 c olive oil 3 cloves of garlic. Another friend’s flowers from her garden.

Such generous friends.

It might be time for new red and white checkered table cloth. I hemmed this fabric in 1974 and the red has faded to almost pink.

Even if it rains, the front porch offers shelter and a wonderful place to watch the downpour.
