It was hot today.
The sort of Florida mid-summer hot!
The kind of hot where you just want to laze in the pool.
Not give a thought to the garden.
But give a thought I did.
Up and at it,early.
Before the temperature and humidity got too bad.
Time to harvest the bounty of basil,that we have this year.
And the parsley and oregano,too.I don’t know why,nor am I questioning,but I seem to have the best luck with herbs,here on TheGreatWall.Could it be our alkaline soil?
The afternoon was spent making Pesto.Some to use for tonight’s dinner,and some to freeze for later….
Their aroma is intense.
It can be smelled throughout the entire house.
Dinner this evening was an hors d’ouerve of pesto,panetini(I cheat-I bought it at Sam’s),and grape tomatoes from the garden(I have some serious grape tomato love going on---they perform incredibly well in our Florida heat). and don’t forget the Merlot!
and a dinner of boneless chicken breasts cooked on the grill.With pesto,
Not mentioning what will be frozen for future use,
but this week,I am sure that we will be having Pesto Spaghetti,Pesto pizza……
muchas gracias to whomever invented the vacuum sealer
I think I hear YardBoy calling me…..
Excuse me,but I gotta run……
Stay tuned for tabulleh(with our bounty of parsley)…….
