RE: Pesto, Pesto, PESTO!!!
That`s a nice web site - thanks Brutus. I took a look at the lamb curry on the site (a dish I try and fail with most Friday`s, although getting closer these last few attempts), and that looks do-able. I will try again next Friday (off to the coast this weekend).

RE: Pesto, Pesto, PESTO!!!
Thats not the first time I've heard of someone cubing the pesto. We tried that about 4 years ago, and it worked great. I like mine a bit finer, but I use bleu cheese and tomatos when I spread it on the baguettes.

Unfortunately we had no garden this year - so I have to go find basil this year.

RE: Pesto, Pesto, PESTO!!!
I've seen recipes where they used coriander/cilantro or parsley instead of the basil. Haven't tried it myself but I bet the first would be good in some Indian curry (almonds instead of pine nuts?). Maybe a Tikka Masala or that style. Tan ice cubes? When I suggested 2 cubes for 3 people, that's because I like just a light coating of pesto on my pasta. Sort of like a simple dish I serve up with just olive oil, garlic and Reggiano to toss my pasta in...oops, sorry Bubba..."in which I toss my pasta". This is probably a whole new thread (go ahead and start one) but I've been so entertained by letters back and forth between Lerxst and Bubba wherein the write in what I can best described as a phonetic style. Speling is not important as long as the message is obveeus. I used to work for a guy named Mike ( we called him Mikey) and he was an excitable boy. Hair trigger temper meant to intimidate but just a pussy (cat) when confronted. Myself and "the guys at work" were forever leaving messages written with a Sharpie on all sorts of stuff for him to discover when we did our installs (long story) at various job sites. One I still remember I must give credit to my very good friend John:

Sorry folks! I just couldn't resist. And although I probably deserve it, please don`t ban me...a warning will do

Sacred cows make the best hamburgers.

I bought a doughnut and they gave me a receipt for the doughtnut... I don't need a receipt for the doughnut. I give you money and you give me the doughnut, end of transaction. We don't need to bring ink and paper into this. I can't imagine a scenario that I would have to prove that I bought a doughnut. To some skeptical friend, 'Don't even act like I didn't get that doughnut, I've got the documentation right here... It's in my file at home. ...Under "D".'

Hey Brutus, if you like Thai flavors, might I suggest a "pesto" made with Thai basil, surachi, sesame oil and peanuts? I make that for Mr. Matters and he loves it!!

Um... you're saying that Bubba and Lerxst (happy birthday!) communicate in LOL speek? Big Grin
