Eastside Road, August 6, 2012—
FIRST PESTO of the summer. Garlic and salt, pound; pine nuts, pound; basil (I cut it with scissors into the mortar), pound; grate in Parmesan and Pecorino (about two to one), pound; add oil, blend. Not much to it, and oh boy is it delicious.

We had it on fusilli, whose threads hold the sauce nicely; soybeans and corn before, green salad afterward; blackberries for dessert. What a nice summer supper.
Red wine: L Preston, Preston of Dry Creek

Argh! I left a day too soon...guess I'll just have to make my own pesto. It would have been nicer eating it with you two...
