Thankful for (Basil)

I am thankful, overflowing like this bulging bowl of basil. 

I suppose one of the many things I am thankful today is basil. Pesto has a special place in my heart.
There are few things more comforting to me (food-wise) than a big bowl of pesto pasta.
Plus, since Tai is deathly allergic to tomatoes, we swap out tomato-based things like tomato pizza and pasta sauces for pesto.
Basil makes tomato-free living more doable and more enjoyable. :)

So I am thankful like a bulging bowl of basil, and I am thankful for a big garden of basil (and cilantro... cilantro pesto is a new delight! But that's for another day).

What are you thankful for today?

I am thankful for warmer weather:) And for y'all! I love your blog and feel more connected to Africa by it. Keep up the amazing work. You're in our prayers.

Oh yum!!! We are getting our gardens up and going here. Planting for the past few weeks, watching things start to poke their heads out of the soil.. fun times.
