Day 177—Pesto

I’m home and the basil I planted before I left is thriving and flowering. Can’t use the flowers for pesto so I harvested enough to make a batch of pesto and pinched the flowers off the rest. I got so involved in making the pesto that I forgot to take photos as I went. Food photography is quite a challenge and I know why so many food stylists often use other-than-edible food to make those magazine covers so enticing. When I decided to take some pictures of the finished product, I got so involved in setting up the shot that I noticed the pesto was started to discolor so this shot (the thirteenth) is a little darker than when I finished making it.
