Earthy harvest, Moving on, Perfect summer time spread
1. Today I harvested basil and made pesto. Its fragrance combined with that of olive oil, garlic, pine nuts, and Parmesan filled the kitchen with goodness.
2. The first book I chose to read just isn't what I want. I'm usually stubborn and keep at it because I hate to quit. But I toss it aside anyway and happily pick up the next one I have waiting.
3. Fresh pesto is spread on bakery white bread, filled with slices of fresh mozzarella and tomatoes, buttered on the outside, then grilled in a panini pan. Compliments of Ina Garten's Barefoot Contessa. The flavorful, gooey inside with the crisp, buttery outside is a texture sensation.
