I bought this fresh smelling herb at the market, NOW WHAT??? If you are like me, you sometimes have to learn a new way to use an item from the market. So, you get home and wonder..."How do I keep this fresh and use it as part of my family's favorite meal?" This week it was Basil. Our family makes spaghetti often, so I chopped up a few leaves of basil and tossed them in our sauce. To be honest, I didn't know if it would a make a bit of difference, because our family loves spaghetti. I didn't think it would hurt to try it out. When the meal was served, I could not have imagined the reaction....from every person in our family. "Mom, this is the best spaghetti I have ever tasted!" ..."Yeah, thanks, Mom, this is great!"
Lesson learned!....don't be afraid to try something new. You might even surprise yourself!
