I had planned to paint a bookcase today...outside.  But it rained this morning and the herb garden was overrun with basil so I decided to make pesto instead. 

Now it doesn't really take that long to make pesto...I have no idea what I did with the rest of the day.

I use a recipe from The Silver Palate Cookbook...basil, garlic, walnuts (cheaper than pine nuts and good for your brain health), olive oil, parmesan and romano cheeses.

I made two batches and they will go into the freezer.  I know that some say you shouldn't put the cheese in if you are going to freeze it but I don't see that as a problem.  I will make more in a few weeks...and we will have great pesto all winter.
