I’m not psychic, but… (A pesto follow-up)

I posted a blog entry last week about homemade pesto. My major commentary was that it was relatively easy to make, could actually be made in a healthy fashion, and was a lot more cost-friendly to make it than to buy it in a jar costing $3 or $4.

(Meanwhile, somewhere in the background, my sister-in-law, who also follows my blog, was going shopping for food for our recent family get-together at the cabin in Oklahoma. I was bringing the stuff for biscuits and gravy for breakfast and the pasta salad as the side for dinner. She was bringing the makings of burgers and brats and an appetizer.)

I like to post entries about food and recipes that seem to be “gourmet” but are actually easy to make or prepare. You wind up feeling like you are ahead of the curve and not simply buying frozen pizza rolls. Pesto just happens to be one of those items that SEEMS gourmet but really isn’t. And I went to some lengths to indicate such by making that entry.

(That evening, after shopping, my sister-in-law checks her mail to find a blog entry by me about the ease of making pesto…right after she bought a jar of pesto as part of her appetizer. In her defense, it was a $1.99 jar and not the high-falutin’ $3 and $4 jars that I was dissing in my blog. And it was tasty. Not as tasty as mine, of course.)

So, I will be careful what I blog about with regard to food and recipes when next we get together with the family at the cabin in Oklahoma.
