Basil is back!

Basil is back and we are SO glad!  The lovely green leaves make me happy....in fact, they make everyone happy...

Why?




Because, with basil we can have bruschetta again!  Lovely before dinner....or instead of dinner....or as a snack or instead of popcorn.    Yum.
Dean likes his with red....and I white, but we both agree that it is wonderful.  We have to act quickly or the kids will gobble it all up!





To make us even happier, I have already put a pound of basil butter up!  Yep, Sunday evening I harvested 3 plants.   And none to soon as we just finished all of our basil butter from the last harvest.

Now we can have basil bread......mmmmmmm

That basil butter sounds yummy. I didn't know you could do so much with one plant.

Sounds yummy and I'm hungry! I planted basil with my preschoolers a few weeks ago and am planning to grow some basil for myself this year. I love the smell of it.
