I get really cranky....

If I don't eat every five hours or so. My work lunch is at 11 and dinner in our house is usually seven, so I start to turn into a psycho around 5. Last night, that problem was solved with a little improvised appetizer.

I made a garlic scape pesto** (yes, I just happened to have some in the fridge), folded it into cream cheese and piped the mixture onto a melba round. Topped with a slice of super ripe tomato and I was able to make it all the way to 7:30 without killing anyone.

** I was inspired by Kalyn's recipe, but did not follow it. Mine had no cheese and some pinenuts added.

this looks really good especially when you need something to eat between meals. And healthy as well... you can't go wrong with that.

Delicious! I'd been wondering what to do with those skinny green things at the Market, and now I know, thanks to you and to Kalyn. I love discovering new foods...thanks for sharing.
