Alarm clock: Off

I love time off, I mean who doesn't. One wonderful thing about having time off is the fact that you don't have a schedule or at least you don't have to if you don't want to. I love days off and weekends for this wonderful fact. It's my favorite when I don't have to set an alarm clock. The sun wakes me up and I can do with my day what I will; which is such a great feeling. We just got back yesterday for a couple nights stay at Virginia Beach. Its was lots of fun and lots of relaxing. Playing in the ocean was my absolute favorite.

Also I want to tell you about my abundant Basil!! I'm so excited that it really took off. I had started out with; basil, rosemary, Italian parsley and chives. I followed the directions and started them indoors then moved them outdoors. Unfortunately I think I waited far too long to replant them in a larger pot so the other three didn't do to well. I decided to stick with the basil cause it seemed like it was going to make it. I sure am glad I did!

Look at it now...

It's huge and the flavor is wonderful. I find myself adding it to anything and everything. I have added it to scrambled eggs, pastas, and even a frozen pizza. Tonight we are having one of Jordan's favorites...Mediterranean pasta which calls for basil :)
Please send any yummy basil recipes you have my way!
