how to do date night. {& Poor Man's Pesto}

{one} cute guy invites you for walk on beach.

{two} you surprise him with picnic.

Instacipe! Poor Man's  pesto {see below for recipe}, tomato, mozerella and red bell pepper on croissant.
{Almond pesto= Pesto made with almonds instead of pine nuts, just as good and a lot less expensive to make fresh}

{Three} Drink red wine, and talk about sweet things

{Four} Remember that you're lucky and enjoy all the love.



Poor Man's Pesto:
2 cups packed fresh basil leaves
4 cloves garlic
1/4 cup ALMONDS
2/3 cup extra-virgin olive oil, divided
dash of red pepper flakes (optional)
S&P, to taste 
In food processor blend basil, garlic, red pepper flakes and almonds until coarsely chopped, add oil in slowly and run processor until it is the consistency you desire.
I call this poor man's pesto because usually pine nuts cost an arm and a leg, and I always have basil, olive oil and almonds on hand. 

I use this on sandwiches, pastas, fry seasoning.... it's pretty much good on everything.
