Each fall I buy a LOT of extra virgin olive oil at Big Lots, pecan bits (I am too cheap to buy pine nuts at approx. $16 a pound), parmesan cheese and garlic and harvest oodles of my Lesbos basil and make vast quantities of pesto to freeze for winter and spring. Even pecan PIECES are $11 a pound at Publix...then I noticed 1 pound bags of pecan MEAL for $5.50 a pound. Since it all gets buzzed in the blender the meal makes sense AND saves me a lot of money. Some smart sweet guy with nice pecs should marry me for my cooking and insatiable sex drive!
