catnip/dandelion pesto

I had my first spring meal, and it was so, so good. After a winter of eating bland, sad vegetables grown just for the sake of making money, eating spring greens right outside my front door is like coming home.

I made catnip/dandilion pesto. It’s what happens to be growing prolifically on my yard right now. The catnip counters the bitter dandelion. I had on top of oat pasta, vidallia onions and kidney beans. Hmmmm good!!

Fresh from the garden

If I follow my sister around the greenhouse long enough, and give longing looks toward certain veggies, I tend to go home with the fixings for a salad. Today’s haul included lettuce, a zucchini, herbs and a cuke.
