Homemade Pesto


Rachel and I followed the pesto recipe left by Joanne under Farming in the City (Part II) and the result was deliciously potent. It stings the nostrils in a very sexy way... We harvested about half of our basil in the dark last night because we needed to get the pesto ready for tonight's camping dinner. We are leaving to go camping at a place called Twin Harbors State Park, our site is quite literally a stone's throw from the Pacific Ocean. I CAN'T WAIT!! It is the same park we stayed at last year for our surfing adventure. Although last time we had to stay in the cramped RV section of the park. Since then, Rachel has taught me the art of sweet-talking phone representatives, mainly, just being nice to them. My new skill made the reservations lady super helpful and she hooked us up with the beach front site even though I called the day before our arrival and the online reservations system said everything was full. Cool, huh?

OK, so maybe I don't leave comments as often as my darling other...

It's quality, not quantity right?

Great photos of you all and a very happy looking dog - almost as happy looking dog as Jake when he's flying through the air, turning his head slightly to catch a frisbee followed by the victory loop!

Looked like you had fun but your writing definately confirms it!!

Your fervor for salsa impresses me. Harvesting late at night--true troopers!
