Summer is here in full force. We have reached the mid 90's on the island and over 100 all around us.
One thing that makes the heat bearable is our luscious crop of basil and the promise of tomatoes ripening soon.
Pesto is one of those indescribable delights! It is a tad cooler today, so I hope to make several batches to freeze for winter usage. I'll fill it with memories of sun and light breezes, of briny sea smells, fresh fruit and flowers. I love the summer!
I'm hoping to add more notes later. But now I'm off to the pool. I swim laps when I can. And after yesterday's gigantic hot-fudge sundae (totally off limits and doubly delicious because of that) I need to swim. Talk to y'all later.
