Basil

Here it is, my first basil crop of the summer!  I rinsed it all off (I still have a few snails...grrr...) and made....

.... pesto!  It made about 6 servings of pesto, which I put into plastic bags...

.... and popped it in the freezer for quick weeknight pasta.  Or pizza.  Or snacks.  Or company.  Or gifts.  You get the point.

I kept one serving out and made penne with roasted asparagus and it was DIVINE!

The moral of the story is:  grow some basil, it's easy and loves the hot summer sun.  Then harvest it often and make pesto so your winter meals will be full of summer sunshine.  The end.
