Item #44: It's done! We grew our own basil & made pesto! We used this recipe from Karen, over at Crazier In Real Life!
Here's the proof, in photos:
Inspired by Chef Anne Burrell, we finished it off with a hit of grated Parmesan cheese, and some salt. Perfection! AND we have more basil leaves, so we can do it all over again in another couple of weeks, if we want. Those 3 plants really have grown a lot since we bought them.
