His wish was my command, so, today I got some basil from our garden, and then headed back inside to make some pesto for my boys belly.
When making pesto I don't tend to measure my proportions but rather just a mix of salt, basil, toasted pine nuts (or walnuts) and olive oil. I also add some parmesan cheese just before serving.
Years ago I made pesto with my mortar and pestle, but lately I've taken to making it in the food processor. It's a lot quicker, ends up smoother and the kids seem to enjoy it more.
What we don't eat right away, I spoon into glass jars and freeze for nights when I don't have time to cook.
Fingers crossed that it fixes my boys belly. He is off to school camp next week and he needs to be well for that.
