Good afternoon.Been a very busy guy this morning. Pick basil from the garden and made pesto.Mike sister is coming over tomorrow night for linguini with pesto.nothing like fresh.I am so please with the outcome. The heat wave is creeping in. Have anyone here ever made pesto.?this is so easy to make. The one that they sell in the market are expensive and not as good as home made. The photo is mine.

We have basil growing in the kitchen, we really should make something fresh like pesto. Do you just make it in the food processor?

Although I like pesto we've never made it and don't often have it. I bet your home-made pesto is yummy.

@amadeo We are having folks for dinner tomorrow. Perhaps I'll buy some for them but I'm sure it won't be as nice as your home-made stuff.
