Good Friends Share Their Veggies
Our friends, K & R, live across the street. They have a fabulous vegetable garden and we are the lucky recipients of much of the results. We've been lucky enough to receive lettuces, carrots, green beans, tomatoes, cilantro, basil, and peppers.Look at all of this purple basil! I made a large batch of pesto using both of these basils, garlic, almonds, olive oil, pecorino romano, and a bit of freshly squeezed lemon. No, not the traditional Genovese pesto. I never make it that way. It's good, I like it, but I prefer mixing it up. I use what I have. It's all pesto (paste). And it's all good.
