arugula pesto and a halter top

April 21st, 2009

Living in the inferno has us craving cold foods. We’re having arugula pesto salad to make a dent in the arugula that has been threatening to overgrow the house. The kids’ pasta was accompanied by clown faced salads of salmon (mouth), mushroom (nose), black berries (eyes), and red pepper (ears).


Arugula Pesto
– 1 bulb of green garlic or 2 cloves mature garlic
– 1/2 cup walnuts
– all the arugula you have
– 1 cup parmesean
– 1/4 c toasted walnut oil or olive oil

I add these to the cuisinart one item at a time to get the garlic minced finely enough. No one but Doug likes raw chunks of garlic. Toss on your hot pasta and chill the salad until you are ready to eat.

And the last of my sewing this weekend. Mom, I hemmed it after I took the picture. I swear. I also took in the bust as even I was busting out.
