#31day October Writing Challenge >>> Day 22!

Oy vay!

I've done it again. No, not failed but SUPER succeeded in the kit-chownnn.

I bought a basil plant last week and so far I haven't killed her. 
In fact, She's been quite good to me thus far and I've used her for many dishes. 
My fave so far, you ask?

Homemade Cilantro-Basil PESTO!

I googled how to make pesto because I've never made it before. Had I known it was so dang easy I would have attempted lonnnnng ago. It always seemed like a fancy schmancy dish that I wasn't ready for. But, I did it y'all!

I'm all about giving credit to other bloggers and recipes. Honestly, this was my own! After much research I ended up not following a recipe and going with my own dish. 

Here goes!


3/4 cup combined fresh cilantro and basil 
1 cup tasty olive oil
1/2 cup pecans
2 tbs feta cheese
1 tbs agave nectar
1-2 cloves of fresh garlic
dash of seasalt


Add pecans to food processor (or nutribullet) and finely chop.
Combine all ingredients and mix!
Change consistency to your liking (may need more olive oil). 

It makes about 3/4 cup of yummy Cilantro-Basil PESTO!

Just wait until you see how I used it...
