Hi Albert,
I agree exactly Albert, My Mother and I could eat pesto on every thing but Kellogg's Corn Flakes.

I mean when I have a batch of pesto in the refrigerator one of us is constantly in the 'fridge' seeing
if there is just enough Extra Virgin Olive Oil on top of the pesto and a layer of Glad Wrap laying
loosely onto of the pesto.

Of course we always seem to have a little plate of crackers, bread, a knife to spread with. It is very
addictive and very tasty.
