feed the birds

A few weeks ago we went on a family date to Loring Park for a picnic and to feed the ducks. It was so lovely and Max LOVED throwing bread in the water and watching the ducks gobble it up.

Our Pesto is the Best-o

Thanks to Anna and Danny, we had a whole bunch of fresh basil on hand, so of course we made pesto! I looooooooove pesto. It's so summery! We don't have a food processor however, and our blender broke a few months ago, so we used our Magic Bullet. Here is the recipe we used if you are interested in trying it out!

The Best-O Pesto- adapted from the How to Cook Everything App

2 cups of fresh basil leaves
1/2 cup olive oil
1/2 cup freshly grated parmesan cheese
2 Tbl walnuts (most recipes call for pine nuts but they are DANG expensive)
1 garlic clove - peeled

Toss all ingredients into whatever machine you have that will blend them all up into a nice looking sauce. We served it right away with chicken and rice. YUM!
