Pesto and Opiate Addicition

I’d like to make a suggestion to anyone out there with an opiate addiction.

Grow basil and make pesto.

Combine about 3 cups of packed basil leaves in a food processor or blender with about 1/3 to ½ cup of olive oil (good olive oil), a few cloves of garlic, a little salt, 3 tablespoons of roasted pine nuts, and about ¼ to 1/3 cup really good parmesan or other hard cheese. Blend it and put it on pasta or brown rice. Add some lightly steamed broccoli and sun-dried tomatoes. (I keep a big jar from Costco forever handy.)

It is so freakin’ delicious.

Mmmmmmm. just had a bowl with my daughter made from basil I picked from my garden this a.m.

If you are addicted to opiates and you are already making homemade pesto, please bring some to the office.

We’re good at what we do and we have fun doing it.
