talk about it more

a virtual baby book

When she was two, Fiona regularly said "Talk about it more!" to express her desire to know more about whatever we were discussing.

Oh, how we love pesto!

Yesterday we deadheaded basil at the farm, so I brought the bucket of flowers and stems home to salvage all the good leaves for a batch of pesto. Fiona enthusiastically helped me sort leaves yesterday. Both girls were absolutely delighted this morning to awaken to the savory discovery that the pesto fairy had been here during the night.

For breakfast both children elected to have, of all things, pesto toast with melty cheese. It made me laugh hard enough to photograph them. Now Fiona is requesting leftover pasta from last night. Perhaps she'll try pesto on that, too?

So do you make your pesto with pine nuts or just basil, oil and garlic?

We actually deviate from the traditional recipe and use walnuts in lieu of pine nuts. They're cheaper, and are heart healthy. Good in Mediterranean diet. Taste pretty good, too.
