|Look at that color!!|
I made a pesto the other day with some parsley and the rest of the sweet onion chives, and I decided to use it in a different way than pasta or pizza. I roasted some Yukon gold potatoes, and when they were done I tossed them with some of the pesto, and some sliced scallion, basil, and also some sliced spicy and garlic-y fancy olives. This was AHMAZING!! Who knew pesto and potatoes loved each other so much! The pesto I made was light on oil and heavier on lemon juice, so the oily olives went really well with this dish!
I have some pesto left, I'm thinking of mixing some with some Just Mayo, and making a pesto potato salad, maybe with some peas and scallion? The pestobilities are endless! (Sorry) I actually wrote down the pesto recipe!
- 3/4 C. Parsley
- 1 C. Chives, any variety I used sweet onion
- 1/4 C. Walnuts
- S&P to taste
- 2 Cloves Garlic
- 1/4 C. Nutritional Yeast
- 4T. Lemon Juice
- 1 T. Extra Virgin olive Oil
- 1/4 C. Water (more or less depending on your blender/ food processor)
This pesto is really lemony and herb-y. It really tastes like spring. It would be great drizzled over a big grilled vegetable platter.
I have to leave you with a picture for Caturday of course. This picture of Chunk is sweet to me because in the last three or four months of Dylan's life, he would just sleep right by the water dish. That was it was just right there. After Dylan's passing, Chunk started sleeping in the exact spot every so often. It's like that's what he thinks the man of the house is supposed to do or something. It's very sweet, and always makes me think of my best friend.
