After spending a couple of days in Denver, we headed west to Breckenridge, Colorado. To say that it was breathtaking - is an understatement.
This is downtown Breckenridge...
As you might expect, we did a little shopping in Breckenridge while we were there. The girls discovered one particular store that caught their fancy.
I think it rained in Georgia every day that we were on vacation. The good news is that my garden was looking better than ever when I returned. (I think my garden does better when I'm not at home - maybe I should go on vacation more often.) My basil was especially prolific so I decided to use it up and make some fresh pesto.
4 cups fresh basil
1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
1/2 cup grated parmesan
1/4 cup pine nuts
3 Tablespoons pecorino cheese
2 cloves garlic, chopped
Wash basil and blanch in boiling water for 1 minute.
Add to food processor along with remaining ingredients.
This pesto is great on pasta, sandwiches and even pizza. I will be posting my pesto pizza recipe soon so stay tuned for that.
