Mmmm pesto!!! <3<3<3<3<3<3  
I saw pesto sauce being made on Oprah today, and I had to try it!! I've never, ever had pesto sauce before-- usually I stay away from Italian food because it's either bland (pasta by itself), tomatoey (ew), or has some kind of sourish cream- or vinegar-based sauce (eww). But when I saw what went into it, I had to try this!!

Mmmmm sooooo good <3 I love the saltiness of it, combined with the delicious flavor of basil. Of course it's not fresh because I don't own a food processor, but nuuuuummy. People who know italian food well-- are there any other hidden delights like this, that are flavorful (not bland) and aren't sour or tomatoey? I want <3 Oh, and I don't like rocotta cheese, it tastes sour to me. So no lasagna, etc.

I've been seeing a lot of older people (why only older ones?) painting the landscapes in the parks nearby. It looks like so much fun-- I would love to do this, if only I had the materials to do it, and the patience to pack everything up and go before the day is half over, lol.

Less than 2 days until work... YAYAYAY! I've never in my life actually wanted to do my job before.. XD;

mh italian...
they have loads if nice recipes =3
I for my part liked the ciabatta bread my host mother made with some olive oil, loads of grated cheese, ham and spinach =3

and mh...if you don't like cream cheese...what to do...? o.o
*cooks a lot with that actually since she doesn't like the tomatoe-y sauces either* maybe a really thick vegetable sauce for the pasta? =3
cook/stew some broccoli and cauliflower with a tiny bit of water...then add a bit of broth and blend it...or mash it together into a sauce? =X then put some grated cheese over it~ (and if you want to have some variety, put the noodles into a oven-pan thingie, put the sauce over it, LOADS of cheese and put it into the oven so that the cheese gets all crispy)


mh...the landscape would really inspire you for painting...the only thing is...I can't paint XD
