Last night I was so bummed about dinner. I had intended to make chicken with pesto spaghetti squash. During the final assembly I realized the store-bought pesto had gone bad. frown emoticon So, it was a scramble to figure out how to finish the chicken and squash. It turned out great after all – just not pesto.
Since the yearning was still there and I had never made pesto before, tonight’s dinner was homemade pesto with shrimp. Maybe that was better anyway.
Our local coop has a great deal on bulk basil. We have fresh mint growing in our garden. (Yes, I know it is Minnesota but there is a trick.) Basil with a hint of mint. It turned out great.

That along with sauteed shrimp and roasted spaghetti squash made for a fine dinner (oh, and roasted asparagus.) My wife gets the leftovers for lunch the next day. She is the envy of the office.
