Best Thing I’ve Eaten This Week

29 Aug

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.

Fresh basil in the food processor!

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.
