This morning was crop day – for basil. I grabbed my oldest and went outside and picked all the big leaves off our small plant which has faithfully produced all summer long. I thought it wouldn’t survive when I first moved it outdoors but it proved me wrong. It had a sorry look back in June but we have pesto today. I decided to try the light version published in “The Best Light Recipes” of America’s Test Kitchen. Now, the hard part. Getting a 4 year old to be excited about a green sauce that will ‘contaminate’ his entire pasta bowl. Bribery should do it. Want a lollipop?
