Yesterday we went to ALBERTSONS. We needed a monthly egg run. I found some stew beef that was reasonably priced for beef, that is these days.
We had make your own pizzas last night. My daughter had purchSed a jar of pesto at Costco. Really expensive. I remember posting a chicken pesto penne recipe back a while. I found another recipe for inexpensive pesto. My husband is not too anamoired with pesto, but the rest of us are.
2 cups fresh spinach leaves
1/2 cup basil leaves ( fresh)
1/4 cup chicken broth
1 t olive oil
Pinch of salt
2 tsp minced garlic
Process in food processor or blender.
Use it on salmon or other fish, on pasta, in a chicken or turkey panini. Or ??????
Sometimes a little splurge will wake up a tired menu even on a limited budget. Pesto is easy to make from scratch. You can use just about any green herb, olive oil, and nuts to make pesto. You can buy small packages of nuts at the dollar store.
