Pistachio Pesto

30 Mar

Hello everyone,

Awhile ago I bought some pistachio nuts for a Aarti’s recipe for Bombay Sloppy Joes. Well, I had a lot of them left and just didn’t know what do with them. They are not my favorite nut, that would be macadamia nuts! Yummy!! So I hunted around the web for a while to see what looked good and jumped out at me. This recipe is a modified versions of Alton Browns on Food Networks site. It is fantastic, not something I would have thought up on my own. I just don’t make pesto sauce that much..

Pistachio Pesto:

4 cloves garlic

4 cups fresh parsley

4 tbsp. fresh lemon thyme leaves

2 tbsp. fresh sage leaves

1 cup parmesan cheese

1-1/2  cups pistachio nuts

1-1/3 cup olive oil

salt and pepper to taste

Finely puree all ingredient’s together in a food processor. Serve over hot cooked pasta.

I am going to Ronald McDonald house this Friday. They asked for something simple since they are having another group come in at 10 or 11am, to cook lunch. I thought I would make rice crispy treats and a chocolate peanut butter no bake cookie. Both are very easy and no hot oven to heat up the kitchen!!

I saw the new Dr. yesterday, she seems really nice and wants to help me.. She asked a lot of different questions about the Sarcoid symptoms I have been having.. They took 8 vials of blood and exrays of my ribs, hands and feet. One Dr. keeps asking me if I had ever broken a rib in my back. I said I don’t know??? I fell of the back of a horse one time when I was a kid and got the wind knocked out of me. There is one other thing that happened, that could have caused it. When I was 11, a person beat me with metal slotted spoon. I had welts from the back of my neck to the back of my knees.. I won’t say who did this to me, and no I didn’t get any medical treatment for this either.. I’ll know something next week I hope.. She said something about trying a different medication. I did get to the Y this morning, I really needed to go. I have been and am still in a lot of pain in my back and legs. I don’t know what happened, but I am so sore, it hurts to move. The water did help, I even sat in the hot tub for about 10 minutes. I have avoided the hot tub, mainly because there has always been a lot of old creepy men in there.. I wish they had 2 hot tubs, one for men and one for women. I can’t go in the sauna, it would take my breath away…

Well I better go for now.. I need to bake my husband some chocolate chip cookies, he’s been asking for me for a while to bake some.. I like baking something so simple for him. Makes him happy.! 🙂

Until next time…

Amanda 🙂

    In my opinion you are not right. I can defend the position. Write to me in PM, we will discuss.
