...based on my recent happy accident of purchasing fresh basil
and my recent/current/constant obsession with walnuts.
I have recently been using a lot of fresh basil in my cooking endeavors. There was a slight line-separation discrepancy in the please-pick-this-up-at-Trader-Joe's list I quickly jotted down for the husband a few weeks ago, and instead of having basil Italian sausage in our fridge we ended up with Italian sausage and fresh basil.
Not complaining! Some miscommunications work out for the better, don't you think?
One of these days we will start growing fresh herbs on our patio since it is sunny ALLTHETIME, but until then, this purchase will now be intentional.
I'm also obsessed with walnuts lately. Usually we have pecans around but I have rediscovered that I think walnuts are the king of the stone fruits. (Which is the family nuts as a group apparently belong to...lock that little gem away in case you're ever on Jeopardy.)
Missing protein on your plate? Try walnuts! Getting bored with your hot breakfast cereal? Try walnuts! Tired of chocolate on your sundae? Try walnuts!
I'm kidding, that's crazy talk. Keep the chocolate--add walnuts.
