Today's post brought to you by the letter "p."
My poor purple basil didn't look so great after the first night, so I knew I had to do something with it quickly. The most useful thing I could come up with was pesto.
I found a great recipe on a blog named Farmgirl Fare. I liked that the recipe used almonds instead of pine nuts; it altered the taste just slightly so it was different than expected. I didn't have any fresh tomatoes, so I threw in a couple sundried tomato halves (the ones in oil, not the dried ones) and was happy with the results.
