Basil x 2

September 11, 2016

I moved into new dwellings back in June but after taking a 5 week trip to Chicago in the middle of summer, I'm finally feeling like I'm settling down in my new digs. To spruce up the place, I decided to welcome a basil plant into my home (my first plant, ever).
The Mr. Basil plant was courtesy of Trader Joe's and he had such large leaves that provided some delicious meals, including a new summer favorite: Smitten Kitchen's One Pan Farro with Tomatoes.
A week after Mr. Basil's arrival, I adopted a young, feline friend who I named Basil (but the naming was completely unrelated to the Mr. Basil plant).
And now three weeks later, due to lacking a green thumb, I only have Basil Cat as a roomie. Maybe there will be another Mr. Basil plant but for now, it's just Basil and me.
