Basil time of year

Our garden is growing apace, full of lots of rapidly maturing greens, eggplant, beets, carrots, etc. And, of ourse, always basil.

Yum, I guess I'll make a batch of pasta sauce this coming weekend - I like very basil-ly tomato sauce. Maybe some pesto as well, but we've recently been partial to cilantro pesto though it's mostly too hot in Houston to grow cilantro except mid-winter. Cilantro pesto! and A. recently made a mint pesto (included some parsley) which was very complex tasting - just delicious.

But this weekend will be red sauce with loads of basil (and mushrooms).
