Anyway, I haven’t had much of a chance to work on my blog. Not that I have made anything new – I made pesto for my son. I wanted to share it with you all because on Saturday the boys and I went to my friend’s house for a play date. We ate pizza and drank wine – the boys drank juice. My friend has a very nice herb garden and gave us basil, mint, rosemary, tarragon, thyme, and sage. It all smelled so good. I used the basil tonight for my pesto. I also bought spedini meat, fresh mozzarella, and prosciutto on the hill. I rolled the prosciutto and cheese in the spedini meat seasoned with salt and pepper and olive oil. Dinner was at the table with the family. Those are the best times – sharing with family and friends.

Herbs, Family, and Authors
Sometimes it gets really busy; life can be hectic. These past couple of weeks have been hectic for me. Not only did I go to Canada for a weekend with my family, I got to go to Illinois State University to see Elie Wiesel – a Holocaust survivor, humanitarian, Nobel Peace Prize winner, and author. He wrote Night, an account of his time in Auschwitz during WWII. I teach it to my sophomores every year. It was great to be able to hear him talk – probably one of my best days.
