Ok, obviously I exaggerate, but seriously, do you know how many of those tiny little packages of basil you have to purchase to get 4 packed cups? Yep, unless you have an unlimited grocery budget, basil pesto is definitely a treat best reserved for Summer.
Let’s just keep it real, I don’t grow my own herbs. In fact, I don’t grow my own anything. For those true domestic goddesses with their own perfectly kept garden boxes bursting with fresh living things..
2) so jealous
3) can we be friends??
For the rest of us mere mortals.. take comfort in the fact that in the glory months of Summer… basil is so abundant it’s practically free. Soooo…. let’s make pesto!!! Only 5 ingredients needed (+ salt and pepper).
