Tell me why I always just assumed I didn't like basil? I remember getting hold of some terrible, terrible pesto while we were in Venice on our honeymoon, and I honestly don't think I've looked back since. Honestly, when it comes to food, bland has always been my flavor of choice. Any flavoring that needed to happen could be solved with a little salt or pepper. I couldn't have been more wrong.
We had a cook out last night and instead of lettuce, I decided to get a wild hair and use fresh basil leaves on my hamburger. How fantastic! I've never had anything so flavorful when it came to a hamburger.
Now I hear rumors that there's multiple varieties of basil that taste slightly different...oh educate me, ye masses! Tell me what basil to plant next year and what recipes I've got to try.
On a keychains for a cause note, Erin said she got her keychain in the mail today which is amazing since it only went out Saturday. And, because I had to do it, we've now got University of Georgia colors for our keychains! Go Dawgs! I could have wiped my finger prints off of the metal hardware before I took the picture, but where's the adventure in that? This is the key fob size shown.
October is breast cancer awareness month and one of our breast cancer awareness key chains is perfect for showing your support. Again, proceeds from the sales of any of our keychains go to support my school's American Cancer Society's Relay for Life team.
EG, while I was looking for red UGA ribbon, I tried to find your Auburn colors, although it might just have killed me to do it, but I couldn't find the right blue. All I could find was Gator blue and that just wouldn't have worked one bit. I'll keep looking.
The morning comes early. Sweet basil eating dreams.
