I Heart Basil and I'm not such a Bad Cook

Alright, so if you’ve been reading my site long enough you may know by now I am not too good in the kitchen. My hubby always looks worried when I’m in the kitchen… in a very nervous, almost scared voice, he’ll ask… “What are you doing in there?” As if saying that the kitchen is somehow off limits to me. However, he has no problem with my 3 year old daughter (will be 4 on 11/21!) opening the fridge and trying to pour herself a glass of milk. I’m not really understanding that?
Anyway, to the point of this post. Well, there is actually really no point. You see, I kinda just want to brag. So here goes…
A few months ago I killed my basil plant (or so I thought). I’m not sure what went wrong, but let’s just say I don’t have a green thumb. After killing my plant, I dumped it over in the dirt on the side yard. Well, fast forward a couple months and I found basil growing in my side yard. I was ecstatic… I had fresh basil and I didn’t even have to water it! 🙂
I also have a confession to make – I am a basil freak! I love it! So tonight I made homemade tomato basil soup (with my home-grown basil!) and grilled cheese sandwiches. It was surprisingly delicious! So delicious in fact, my hubby (yes, the guy who is frightened to see me pick up a measuring cup) actually had seconds. I was so proud of myself.
…And if you’re a basil addict too, stay tuned for an amazingly good recipe I will be sharing with you tomorrow– pesto with cherry tomatoes, basil, feta cheese and bow tie pasta!
