homemade pesto

Whoa, what’s up with the comment hiatus people? Maybe I’ll take that as a cue to take a blogging break which might just happen next week. I swear I am getting more and more comments from strangers on posts that are 1-2 years old. Odd indeed. Anyways, I’ll forgive you since you are probably in the midst of summer madness which I can totally relate to. I am afraid that summer’s end will bring lots of tears for this mama. I’m enjoying my time with these kiddos even if I break up 2 dozen fights each day.

Back to my original post:

We have enjoyed lots of delicious food from our garden lately. I love when the kids get a little snack-y I can send them out to go pull a carrot. I devour our tomatoes nightly with fresh mozzarella and basil. Our basil though has been out of control, so to cut it back a bit I decided to make fresh pesto this week. I used this recipe from Food Network. It’s delicious and we enjoyed it just the other night. All I did was throw some pesto in a pyrex, move my chicken around in it and bake at 350 degrees until done. Even my non-chicken lover Gunnar couldn’t complain.
