Anyway, pesto is pretty simple. I use this recipe but instead of freezing it in ice cube trays, I put it in little containers to freeze. We tried ice cube trays last year, but couldn't get the pesto out nicely so hopefully these little containers will work out. This batch only made about 2 cups, so I hope to make more once my basil fills in again.

Because I mixed the green and purple basil, we didn't get that nice vibrant green color normally associated with fresh pesto. Keith referred to the color as "boogerey". He may be right, but it still tastes delicious.

Side note: I love my new food processor! It was a baby shower gift from my mom to make baby food with but we are finding lots of uses for it pre-baby. It certainly makes quick work of pesto!
