yummy pesto

Over the weekend, hubs & I Anj made pesto while I watched and taste-tested.
The recipe was from Southern Living.

I'll tell y'all, the pesto turned out salty as helllll. But, 1) who sits around eatin' pesto straight up? and 2) we are thinkin' it's because we used the shakable parmesan from the green container (salty on its own) instead of fresh parmesan. 

However - once we added about 1/2 c. of walnuts (per a different recipe suggestion), and mixed it in with our {gluten free} noodles, it was perfect.

I opted to add some leftover baked chicken breast to mine.
De-lishhhhhhh!!! ohmagyahhhh.

We spent the rest of the evening enjoying our bevies and listening to the rain.
{Have you gluten-free shug pies tried New Planet? I love their Pale Ale. Hubs likes pale ales and he gave it a thumbs up. They also have a blonde ale, a raspberry ale, and a few others. I got mine at Earth Fare.}

Before bed, I wanted me a lil Diet Coke night cap. {That sounds like a problem, no?} And, I decided to add me a lil lime in there. The jury's still out on that one ...
Anj was like, "Diet Coke with lime? Isn't that a thing?"
Yep, it is. And like I said, I just haven't decided ... I think Diet Coke should stand alone {except the occasional cherry add in}.
