Last night I went outside to pinch off the flowering tips of the basil. They were so fragrant, I couldn't help but plop the sweet ends into a vase on the kitchen counter. Now, each time I pass by the herb cuttings, I start dreaming of a Caprese salad. And, the tomatoes are almost ready to make my culinary dreaming come true! Add the basil, slices of mozzarella, a little balsamic, olive oil, salt and pepper ... Mmmm.
While I was out herb snipping, Pops snapped a few pics on his own. I'm thinking basil also makes a nice backdrop to showcase a new snappy haircut, don't you agree?
