I've been enjoying my greens/herbs pestos of late so I made one with a gorgeous bunch of blue kale that I got from Farmer Greg. I pulled the greens off the stalks, added garlic oil, some parmesan, lemon juice, salt, and pepper and whirred it all up. The first night I had it mixed with the sweet corn that is almost too sweet and it was delightful.
Triple S's luscious smoked pork chops with corn and kale pesto, cherry tomatoes and a mixture of sliced sugar snap peas, peas and green onion.
Last night I realized we had nothing planned for dinner. It's shocking because we seem to spend an inordinate amount of time discussing what we're going to eat. We've had to institute a rule that we can't say, "What are we having for dinner?" before noon. Unless there are mitigating circumstances of course. Anyway, I finally cut up a bunch of vegetables….orange bell pepper, green onions, purple cabbage and sugar snap peas and tossed in the leftover corn. I made a quasi fried rice with some leftover rice and then mixed my kale pesto in with it all and topped it with a fried egg. It was truly delightful
Had a lovely time hanging out in the front yard yesterday with our beloved Jeff Evans and Debbie Stewart. And look what Debbie delivered to me. ❤️ I can't decide where I'm going to put it. It needs a place of great honor.

Oh, and Ernie had an appointment with his oncologist today and all his numbers were great. I adore his oncologist. We talked about weed and cooking shows and laughed a lot.
