iris and pesto pasta with pets....


(antique postcard I got on my birthday-they had beagles 100 years ago?!)

OK, so like I was saying yesterday, there are some magic dwarf iris around coming up...it usually seems iris are a late May thing for us, what a delight these few guys are...Nook and I were walking near his house and saw these....


IN OTHER news, I made Lori's broccoli, tomato pesto dish (click here) with some of my abundant basil...gawdamn it was GOOD.
If you click there you'll see the specific recipe, but it can be summed up simply, the way I made it:
broccoli, tomato pesto pasta for 2
-Boil a cup of noodles
-saute 2 cups broccoli with 1/2 cup diced tomato, some pesto, some garlic, some sundried tomatoes
-add 1/2 cup of the pasta water, some parmesan and some more pesto, red pepper flakes, stir around to warm, mix with drained noodles, top with more parmesan MMMMMM!

Your basil looks great! I don't have much luck growing it indoors.

Those are the first "dwarf iris" I've ever seen. Beautiful! Spring has sprung!
