Dal Giardino Alla Tavola... From The Garden To The Table...

The Pumpkins have been planted and i'm excited to see how that will go this year.  If only they were as easy to grow as the herbs...  Basil,  Arugula,  Italian Parsley,  Italian Oregano,  Chives,  Borage, Thyme,  Sage, Rosemary, Lavender , Lemon Verbena, and different types of Mint,  all doing well,  and looking so pretty . I made an Italian Parsley and Oregano Pesto with Walnuts as a change from Traditional Pesto and used it on Grilled Flatbread with Kalamata Olives.  Grilled Salmon,  simply topped,  with a variety of chopped Herbs...  Herb Blossoms to garnish Fresh Ricotta.  Anna has lots of beautiful Apricots on her tree and gave me some to make a Tart.   Puff Pastry, topped with Vanilla Bean Sugar Mascarpone ,  and  Apricots,  with Lemon Verbena.
