last hurrah

i grew out the basil 3 times, using the last batch for my store bought 'freezer' pizza.
the fresh basil 'kicked it up a notch'

now the power plant is resting, as i'll be off traveling again next week.

when i get back i want to see what herb of the moment is....although i might try arugula which is a tasty compliment to any sandwich...especially if toasted.

on another note, i used prepara's latest 'flavor' mister on the pizza, as i'm trying to keep the fat off my food and hopefully off my body! (not a good place to start..a pizza!...but none the less it was a valiant start).
the mister is currently exclusive to sur la table... it has a filter for a blockage free spray, its fully dishwasher safe, while being sterilizable...(which is great for making your own flavored infusions)...and best yet it's awesome looking!
i gave one to my sister and had her take one for my mom!

oh, and check out the grow lamp...used in this case to keep the orchids happy!
