When you have an over abundance of (insert appropriate summer produce here) peaches, you have to get a bit creative with how you use them so that the little people don't exclaim "peaches again, mom?"
This morning I came back from the garden with a few handfuls of basil to make pesto later in the day. I love basil. I love how it smells. And I was just thinking about how almost anything tastes a bit better with basil.
Hmmm...peach smoothies? And basil?
We tried it and it is amazing. I think I've found our newest breakfast treat.
