The pest made pesto

My current food obsession:  Pesto

Eating it on…potatoes, tortillas, eggs, salads & pizza

I threw together a batch a couple of weeks back and today Flower Girl did the same.  Both times it came out fab!  No measuring just a handful of ingredients in the food processor.

A few bunches of fresh basil, a handful of walnuts, parmesan cheese (not the grated stuff), 3-4 cloves of fresh garlic, a dash of salt, and several glugs of extra virgin olive oil.

My girl also learned to make butter today.  Even though I must admit she made it out of desperation.  Who can eat a slice of homemade grilled toast without that?  Mother was lacking on groceries but had some cream she had frozen & thawed in anticipation of the shortage.  FG also made no-bake peanut-butter cookies.  Atta Girl….hoping she’ll take over some of the kitchen duties this summer 😉
