that's pretty much it. i spent the summer enjoying our nieces visiting, my girlfriend and her family coming from texas for over a week, and then going to utah to visit my other best girlfriend (and her pregnant belly!) for a few days. then i hit the books hard for grad school at calbaptist! i love it. it's hard work, and homework isn't fun. but i love learning about this crazy passion of mine. (get it? mental and behavioral health = crazy. it was funny.)
i'm actually mostly posting today to put up a recipe so i don't forget it!
1 bag fresh baby spinach
1 tsp kosher salt (or to taste)
1 tsp black pepper (or to taste)
7 tbls pecorino/parm cheese blend
3-4 tbls lemon juice (or to taste)
1-2 tbls fresh garlic (peeled and minced, to taste)
~1/2 cup olive oil
blend it all up in the food processor or blender and enjoy on everything! i recommend pasta, chicken, fish, and roasted potatoes. should keep in the fridge for awhile. maybe 2 weeks? the layer of oil that hardens on the top will help keep it fresh and green. this should make about 2 cups of pesto, give or take a bit.
