Sorry, I wasn't thinking of grated. In that case it sounds like a total calorie bomb, but very tasty.

That fish looks great. I may have to steal that idea. I have been making pesto everything this year as my basil is growing like trees.

The fish was really good, and what's more special on this plate to me, is the mash. A light crisp crust, with perfect mash potatoes inside. My favorite Tico restaurant.

I have enough basil for a triple batch of pesto, and I'm going to use the rest, plus my mint and parsley, to make some marinades and freeze them. Chicken thighs marinated in those 3 herbs, garlic, ginger, soya sauce, chili, sugar, and sometimes fish sauce, is delicious but I don't have fresh herbs all winter. I think if I freeze the marinades they should work.

I could only make a double batch of pesto as I didn't have enough pine nuts for more. So I'm freezing some basil leaves because Vinny assures me that they will be fine for making pesto in a few months.

Freezing fresh basil? Nope. Impossible. Black mush.

Send me some homemade pesto and I'll send you some homemade chilis in adobo. Deal?

That sounds like an awesome exchange, Deal!

I froze some basil leaves last year and they stayed quite ok. I lay them flat on paper towel, paper towel on top, then fold up in plastic wrap. When I opened them several weeks later they were still green.

However ,this time I don't think I got them really dry and I suspect they may turn to black mush.

In the meantime, I ate a grilled veggie burger slathered in pesto for dinner. Plus fresh tomato slices. Plus oven roasted chips made with my garden potatoes.

You could chop up the basil, mix with olive oil and fill an ice cube tray with the mixture.

I often take cold mashed potatoes, form them into a cake and pantry. Great with a fried egg on top. I am suspecting though that these may have bread crumbs on the outside to form a crust.

I made chicken cutlets today for the first time ever. They were really good. The breading had breadcrumbs and parmesan and fresh herbs.

Served them on a bed of greens - kale and chard, sauteed with garlic. And a side of pasta with pesto sauce (I made the pesto a couple days ago). Plus a romaine salad. It was all very delicious.

Last night I made pork chops with cherry glaze, it was pretty tasty. On the side I had roasted fingerling potatoes tossed with thyme and roasted broccoli that I slightly overcooked.

Breakfast in about 20 minutes will be leftover pork and potatoes.

We ate at Fish of My Dreams in Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk.

The fish and seafood here is spectacular and but up until now the only places taking advantage of it were Japanese places. Nothing wrong wth that but this place is a welcome addition.

The prices seem very reasonable and they list a really nice selection.

I am sad. I made what was potentially my best fresh tomato pasta tonight. Fresh tomatoes from my garden. Basil, parsley and super fresh and juicy garlic. Sautéed that with some chopped up anchovy and a little white wine. Boiled up the pasta to just harder than al dente and tossed it in to my tomatoes with a little pasta water to finish cooking. Added a bit of cheese. It all come together in the perfect consistency for a perfect fresh tomato pasta.

Then tragedy strikes. In the sauté stage I added a little...just a tiny bit!...of scotch bonnet pepper. Just to add a little heat, a little warmth. Then I removed it and added the pasta, etc.

It's so hot I can't finish it. It's so tasty! The perfect consistency! The pasta! The sauce! I sweated over it as long as I could, gulping wine to try to put out the fire in my mouth. A disaster.
