First Crop.....

Here we have our first harvested crop. Basil. Cooking with meatballs and tomato sauce. The sauce is from a jar, but who knows what will happen later this year with our own tomato crop ;-)
The boys were VERY excited to pick the leaves. Matthew helped me tear them up and put them in the pot.
My recipe for meatballs? Buy a package of ground beef, roll into small balls, fry in olive oil, add sauce. I'm a purist - no salt or pepper. That's one thing my 'diet' has going for it!
We all enjoyed it :0)

Fresh basil!! My favorite!! I'm spoiled by my farmer's market..huge amounts for just $1.50! It smells delicious!! Remind me to send you my favorite tomato basil sauce recipe that freezes well and works for soooo many dishes (e.g., pasta, boboli pizza sauce, chicken parmigana).

The meatballs look delish!!
