Green Again

But this time it's pest-o
Not jell-o
(pesto, I know, but I couldn't resist)

Much more appetizing...
Don't you think?
Ok, maybe not in the tupperware, but it sure looked nice on my crackers today at lunch.
Tasted good too.

I'm so relieved to have a new post on my blog, that jell-o one was really bothering me.
(Noah made me do it)

I seem to be very obsessed with food lately.  I almost took a picture of my parfait this morning too (crunchy granola, sweet vanilla yogurt, fresh strawberries and blueberries, YUM).

The pesto brings my "homemade" repertoire to #3
As of this summer I've started making
1.  Wheat Bread
2.  Freezer Jam
3.  Pesto

Yay for me!
