Henry has a wicked sense of humor.
He seemed to be laughing at all of us while we were busy weeding the strawberries. That stinker.
However, he was a smart dog and was nowhere to be found when we finally got busy covering the whole patch. It’s going to get cold tonight and this task is never fun. Especially when it’s windy out. And guess what….it’s always windy out when we do this!
The strawberries should be safe though.
After a day in the dirt we needed something bright green in our life.
We also needed something with a kick. And that is exactly what this arugula pesto brings to the table.
I have made a million different types of pesto in my life. However, arugula pesto has never crossed my mind. That is until I was staring desperately into our refrigerator trying to think of something to cook. The arugula was resting right next to a block of parmesan and for some reason pesto popped into my mind. I love when this happens! Your refrigerator can be its own cookbook.
A few large handfuls of arugula
3-4 cloves garlic, minced
a handful of chopped walnuts, lightly toasted
a handful of shaved parmesan
about 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
salt and pepper to taste
Mix all ingredients in a food processor.
We made a pizza and used this pesto as the sauce. It was amazing!
