This is my first-ever food post. What the hell, everyone needs to do at least one food post in their blogging life, right?
Supergirl Two and I made pesto with the basil from our garden. It was tough old basil, I tell you, but ground up with pine nuts, cheese, olive oil and garlic, there were no complaints when it came to eating it! We also bought local, organic greenhouse tomatoes and fresh mozzarella, sliced them, arranged them, added black olives, lots of black pepper and ate it all with gusto.
SG2 would not let me take her photo because she thinks I'm indiscreet about which pictures of her I choose to post. I guess I can't be counted on to put her best face forward. But I'm her mother and I think she always looks perfect. So there you have it; tonight's dinner.
Also a note to you all. I've had quite a bit of spam lately. For instance, describing myself as shy in one of my blog posts, generated a couple of emails from folks trying to sell me "get over your shyness" programs. The usual medicine show, internet style. So, starting tomorrow, I will be screening comments, at least for a while. I don't want to come back from vacation and have the blog riddled with unwanted comments.
We're packing up and putting things in order tomorrow and leaving for Nova Scotia on Thursday. W.P. and I have decided to take his work computer (which I have mixed feelings about) but he promised he'll only do the Wi-Fi thing occasionally. When he does, I will likely check in and even maybe read a few blog posts.
So long everyone! I'll try not to come back and bore you with too many Nova Scotia pictures but I know I won't be able to resist posting at least a couple of the highlights.
