wednesday.

today’s artistic moment is brought to you by…

PESTO.

i have a newly created dish in the oven and it is smellin’ so good.  butternut squash filled with italian farro, mushrooms, veggies, san marzano tomatoes, sun-dried tomatoes, tossed with homemade pesto, and covered with parmesan cheese.

it’s gonna be a good day.  a real good day.

the pesto i made this morning has mostly basil, but also dill and cilantro.  the mixture of herbs really makes the flavor pop.  i added pecans, crushed red pepper, flax seed oil, garlic, balsamic vinegar, a little olive oil, kalamata olives, and some lemon juice.  i think i’ll be able to use it in different ways for the rest of the week.

and now i’m going to be late for work.  but it’s so worth it.  lunch is going to be SO yummy!!!
