My my my…look at that poor, barren plant. Only a matter of minutes before this picture was taken, this particular plant was fully bloomed and plush with vibrant greenery. But, alas, this plant went down for a noble cause. The cause? Dinner. Wham, bam, thank you
ma’am plant. Yes, this lovely little basil plant was the inspiration for a fantastic dinner. And it came through in a big way.
We decided to turn that little basil plant into a nice batch of pesto sauce. Basil, olive oil, parmesan cheese, and garlic all added up to a fantastic pesto sauce.
We decided that we couldn’t just eat the pesto out of the food processor on its own, so we had to devise a meal around it. That meal: grilled chicke, grilled tomato, and some angel hair pasta. Put that together and we had a fantastic, homemade meal.
Now we’re just waiting for the little plant to grow back so that we can have seconds of our wonderful creation.
As always: Eat. Be Happy.
