Basil is one thing that yielded no shortage in our garden. Good thing we love basil. Sad thing we have no tomatoes to use it with. However, there are not many things I like better than fresh pesto. I think I've probably blogged about this many times because I like it so much. :)
We had enough pesto to freeze some, give some away, and still have enough for dinner.
Pesto Pizza it is. Yum!
On my pizza, I like to use these veggies.
(That's a zucchini, not a cucumber.)
I saute the peppers and zucchini first in a little olive oil.
I didn't realize I was out of mozzarella until I opened the freezer to grab cheese, so we used cheddar instead. Not too bad.
A few people have asked for my crust recipe.
I usually double it and make 3 round crusts.
Did you know you can freeze crusts in the pan before you top and bake them? Great for a quick meal later.
The girls are having a blast with the crafts given to Malia for her birthday.
Also, Nate saw this and we laughed hysterically.
What exactly does "Naturally flavored with other natural flavor" mean???
And I'm pretty sure there is not one natural thing about powdered lemonade??? Hilarious.
So...if you bought any of the girls' lemonade on Saturday, isn't it reassuring to know that your drink was naturally flavored with other natural flavor??
That's all for now. Pics of the b-day to come. We have one more gift/treat happening tonight!
