A couple of days ago I bought the ingredients to do it again. I wasn't planning to make it this morning but just as I was getting ready to get ready for work I noticed that the sun was shining into my kitchen window onto my basil in such an inspiring way and I got to thinking of the pesto waiting to be made and decided I had to have a Pesto Chicken Sandwich for lunch TODAY...and of course I'd just spent a good part of the morning cleaning the disaster that was my kitchen from last nights kitchen madness and the polenta and poached egg I'd just made for breakfast...and well, I cannot keep my kitchen clean for long. My kitchen cleaning strategy is to clean my kitchen just before I leave for work, so when I get home I'm ready for all sorts of activity. A clean kitchen inspires me. Ming inspires me. Basil inspires me. I did have to pedal as if my feet were on fire, but I did manage to make it to work with 10 minutes to spare. Now I'm looking for all new ways to procrastinate going home because the Little Kitchen is surely strewn with bowls and oily spatulas and spoons with crusty green paste stuck to everything.
Oh and the new photo editing tool on flickr inspires me.
