2012 Week 23

Nothing like posting for the week on Tuesday!  Whoops!

Anyway, we made our first batch of garden pesto this AM and I could seriously eat it for breakfast!  I can hardly wait for dinner.
We used the recipe off the bag of pine nuts, but it's a pretty simple one.  You could do a lot to jazz it up if you wanted.
2 cups packed basil leaves
1/2 cup pine nuts
4 garlic cloves
1/2 cup olive oil
1/4 cup parmesan cheese
salt and pepper
Add the basil, pine nuts and garlic to the food processor and run until you get a paste.  Drizzle in the olive oil, scraping down the sides of the processor as needed.  Add the cheese and salt and pepper and pulse a few times.  Serve on warm pasta, or bread, or just eat by the spoonful (not that I do that).

Anyway, on to dinners...
Sunday - Hot dogs on the grill for Scott and the kids
Monday - Salad and a fruit crisp
Tuesday - Pesto pasta and a fruit salad
Wednesday - Farro Salad with tomatoes and herbs
Thursday - Grilled salmon with a spinach salad
Friday - Sesame tofu stir-fry (didn't do this last week, still have the tofu)
Saturday - Dinner at a friend's wedding
