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?
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.
