Rainy Days and Mondays...

According to the song I should totally be in a funk, but I like rain days and I have the day off so I'm all smiles today. (I will totally annoy everyone when I go to the grocery store later).

If you are not a lover of rainy days or Mondays; or the continuing less than spring-like weather might I suggest you make yourself some pesto and wait it out.  I don't know, pesto is my woman declaration of spring, it is just a perfect spring food item and its so simple to make there's absolutely no reason to buy the prepackaged stuff.

So for everyone that's longing for a little bit of spring, I present PESTO!

1 to 2 cups fresh basil leaves

1 to 2 cloves garlic

¼ cup pine nuts (or walnuts)

¼ c pecorino romano (or parmesan) cheese

Olive Oil

Salt and pepper to taste


In a food processor (you can use a blender if you don’t have one) combine basil, garlic, pine nuts and cheese with about ¼ cup olive oil and a pinch of salt and pepper.  Continue to add oil until pesto is well combined and smooth.


Add to hot pasta or over chicken. 

No worries if its too much pesto for one night, it can also be frozen.

Would you buy this dressing?


Kraft's new ad campaign for it's Zesty salad dressing features a hot guy that eventually ends up shirtless.  I'll be honest, i don't mind the objectification, but it's not going to get me to buy the dressing - sorry Kraft.

Not because it's a bad product, but because I make my own salad dressing - excepting ranch and blue cheese.  And if you recall, this blog started after an ad where brownies were vilified.  How about you, would you buy a product just because a sexy man or woman was in the ad?  Answer in the comments section and be honest.
