When I think of pesto, I think of fresh basil and summer weather. Although we may be a few solid months away from that and a productive growing season, I was inspired by a healthy looking bunch of spinach and kale today. I’m ushering in spring and all things green [hence the pesto] regardless of the frigid temperatures.
