    For it to be bruschetta, I do believe you have to put it onto lil pieces of toast–but, hey, that's how language grows and changes, right? But the toast IS a nice carbo addition. **You-all can use the basil-buds, too, you know–don't toss them onto the compost pile! Just grind them up into pesto, along with the rest of the stuff.

    OK: Pesto Recipe. No need to measure, really–just eyeball it as you go along.
    1. Grind up (however: food processor, two stones, whatever) the basil that you have.
    2. Add olive oil (ok, a measurement approximation: 1 c. leaves to about 3 or 4 tbsp.oil), a clove of garlic, about 2 or 3 tbsp. of nuts (pinenuts are nice, but expensive; sunflower seeds, or walnuts, are, I think, pretty much just as good). Grind all this up.
    3. Add some grated parmesan cheese (about 1/2 cup or so).
    4. Cook some pasta.
    5. Put the pesto on the hot pasta.
    6. Eat!

      Dale… I knew that all along, but in my heart, it felt right to call it bruschetta. A man's gotta follow his heart, ya dig?

      That basil pesto recipe sounds muy delicioso, I have to admit. A great way to use up some basil while making a great meal!
