The days are quite warm and sunny but the night temperatures are getting very low. Today I decided to harvest a pile of basil before the cold nights turn their leaves black. Into my whizzer with some parsley, sun dried tomatoes, garlic and olive oil to make a batch of pesto. I didn’t have any pine nuts so I added a handful of peanuts, and I substituted parmesan cheese with some of Sarah’s vegan nutritional yeast that needs using up.
I shall use some of the pesto in the chickpea and tofu salad for lunch and the rest will go into the freezer.
We met the bear in the woods again yesterday. Turns out he’s an extremely scruffy Newfoundland dog that has been roaming free. He probably belongs to the bogans who live in the middle of the woods.
