purple basil

On the menu this week: fresh bread and smoked mozzarella, pasta tossed with asparagus, and tomato salad with basil. For fun, I picked up green and purple basil ~ and I am inspired! This pesto looks divine, and so does this cocktail (from my favorite restaurant, no less).

What to drink with it all? I am in love with Anne Amie Vineyards' Midnight Saignée rosé, and their wonderful 2007 Amrita (grown here!). And, I would love to try this forbidden fruit...wouldn't you?

Happy wednesday!

The heart always wants what is forbidden - fruit.
Blame it on the devil. Cheers!
