Thursday, August 10, 2017 goodness: basil...


we have been spoiled by the garden goodness this year. despite seemingly poor soil, a few plants are thriving. the basil.

this morning, we harvested a few bunches to make some pesto. my kitchen smells amazing.

fresh pesto.

basil, pine nuts, garlic, olive oil and Parmesan cheese.

so good.

we froze the pesto in ice cubes. the kids thought the green ice cubes were hilarious.

  1. Our soil is pretty terrible too! And I haven't done much this year to try and improve it. But still the garden is thriving and basil is one of my favorite things to harvest!
