i should show you what our basil plants look like now (pics yesterday were from a few weeks ago).
they're almost picked to the bone because i keep making tomato basil quesadillas.
when i planted all the herbs, i hoped i would think of enough ways to use them. so far it hasn't been a problem, especially with the basil.
i made this up for lunch one day & kept making them everyday until i worried the basil plants would die because i picked too many leaves! so far they're okay, but i went back for more basil plants yesterday :)
i love how pioneer woman does recipes with step-by-step pics, so i decided to try that with these quesadillas.
so here's what you do...
thinly slice mozzarella
just imagine, mkay?
these make a light (well, depending on your mozzarella usage) lunch, or make more for dinner. they'd be great with a salad, too.
let me know if you try this. i'd love to hear if it inspires you to pick your basil plant clean :)
