Alliebars are back! She brought me a few at the HLS 🙂
Had one for a snack today. 100% crunchy delicious. The secret is in the salt. And the pecans. But no one knows the recipe!
I worked for a lot of the afternoon…but finally got around to making pesto!
Fresh KERF farmed basil – about 2 cups lightly packed
Half a triangle block of Pecorino Romano (not sure why Matt got this over Parm)
GOLDEN – about a tbsp
‘Bout a quarter cup of walnuts
Whirl it up! It tasted different tonight – rich instead of bright? Not sure why!
Pasta made an appearance.
Pesto Shrimp + Veggies over Whole Wheat Angel Hair
Veggies included green peppers, fresh mater, zucchini
10 jumbo USA wild shrimp
Tongs and more Garlic Gold
Once you put the shrimp in, WALK AWAY. Alton Brown will haunt you if you don’t!
My impression of Alton Brown chewing:
YOU MUST PAY THE RENT
I CAN’T PAY THE RENT
I’LL PAY THE RENT
My personal hero fancied up the dish with more Garlic nuggets –
Some more grated cheese
And a sprig of basil
We thought this was two portions, but it turned out to be about 4!
Bubbles make everything fancier (although I would have killed for some chardonnay with this meal!)
Also, my new gold placemats I won during Sabrina’s HLS talk on entertaining!
An hour later… chocolates.
There are now 3 chocolates with a single nibble out of them. Yes, I’m one of those people.
I am either going to watch So You Think You Can Dance or read my book. Still undecided!
I also might play around with the KERF Theme design. Now that I FINALLY have time to work on the blog again! I hope to update many of the pages and do some minor upgrades to things. As Scar would say…"Be Pre–pared"
