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!

do you need to prime the spray, by pumping it, like other oil spray products?

yes, pump 5-7 times and it's a perfect mist.
my first inclination was to go nuts and over pressurize...you'll get super super fine misty fog.
i have one that i put half olive oil and half balsamic, shook it up and used for my salad pre-mixed!
btw, truly is a beautiful product and the packaging is fresh and attractive
