What I want to write “spring has sprung and I’m sharing the best of the season with you today!” What I’m really going to say “where in the heck is spring? Why is it so cold? Where are my flowers? Stay off my lawn!”

Yeah, I sound like a cranky old man. Whatever. It rained all day and I’m soooooooo over it. So instead I’m going to re-share this garlic scape pesto and pretend that spring really is here. I made this years ago but last year I took some new pictures and I’m just now finally getting around to resharing it with all of you. This pesto is CRAZY packed with flavor and will leave your belly full and your breath kickin’.
