Update on Plant

Plant has been blossoming lately! Look at how big he's gotten! :)

Just kidding. Plant died. This is what he really looks like:
Sad, eh? The top one that is growing so well is a gift from Paula, my boss. (happy secretaries day!) She went to Provo High's Ag Club plant sale and got three HUGE basil plants! I made pesto pasta last night with fresh leaves. Check it out:



It's really easy: fresh basil, parmesan cheese, walnuts, salt, pepper, garlic, and olive oil. Just throw it all into the food processor, and keep taste-testing until you get the right amounts. The more olive oil you use, the less chunky it gets!

Yummy! We love Pesto. I am jealous that you have a fresh Basil plant.

Hey can you get me a basil plant? I bought fresh basil and it is soooo expensive.

I know! They only sell organic basil here, which is about $4 for a few leaves. It's ridiculous.

I wish I could help you...I have been looking for a basil plant for a while, but haven't found one! The Provo High sale where Paula got mine was last week, so I can't get you one there....try Home Depot? I tried growing my own, but as we can all see, that was unsuccessful...
