I feel like I am always folding laundry, usually I just listen to music and thank you Pandora for limitless music; however, the other day I flipped on the TV and watched a little Ina. She made Savory Palmiers. Quick and simple…ah… dinner with a salad.
I did have frozen puff pastry from Trader Joe’s, but pesto? Garden basil wiped out from the winter frost, so next best little basil frozen cubes mixed with a bit of olive oil. Have you kept up with all of the extra virgin olive oil controversy? Fake, fake, fake - is nothing sacred?
