I have been home for only one or two dinners each week lately due to the rehearsal schedule for our show. When Paul and I are going to have a meal at the same time, we like to plan something a little special. Our dinner last night was Piri-Piri Chicken and Pasta with Pesto Sauce.
We have made pesto since we were first married. Our family members will recall it was our "go to" dish when we served dinners when our kids were young. We used to grow so much basil we would freeze large amounts so we could make what we called "winter pesto".
Now, we only grow a few plants in a pot on our patio. We rarely make pesto. Pasta doesn't find its way to our table very often. Sigh.
But the basil on our patio is responding nicely to this humid summer. It was just begging us to do something with it. So, out came the food processor. In went the basil leaves. Out came the pesto sauce. Wow, was it good.
I'll talk to you soon. We are headed to the gym. I have some extra minutes to do on the tread mill.
BUT IT WAS WORTH IT!!!
