Pesto Project

This afternoon, I battled with a case of blah. 

I even became crankier as the imminent heavy rain added to the humdrumness of my day. Fearing that I would soon implode, I looked for something where I could successfully channel whatever negative energy I was having. 
Cooking was the answer!
Trying my hand for the first time in preparing my favorite pesto (thanks to Google for the recipe), it had me morphing into a beaming pussy cat when my three sons, who are non-pesto lovers, showered me with compliments after tasting my tuna pesto.

Non creamy pesto
creamy pesto!
Creamy pesto!
What warmed the cockles of my heart was being told by Arthur, the older twin, that I would no longer be going to TOSH (The Old Spaghetti House) just to eat pesto because I already knew how to cook one. As you can see, my twin sons were witnesses to my love of this pasta (check related posts at
With my son’s comment, does it mean to say that I had partly succeeded in achieving the same taste as that of TOSH’s pesto? 
Hmmmm…Let me see when I do my second attempt and this time with grilled chicken on it.

  1. in my case (especially this particular session), cooking exorcises me. hahaha.

    i also have a cheap set of taste buds, but surprisingly the aftertaste of basil leaves made me addictive to it. 🙂 🙂


  2. i told you, you can always experiment on that flavorful dish and entice your sons to get a kick on it until the red one becomes a second choice. Tuna is actually a healthful choice…OMEGA 3 for you and your kids.


    1. friend, is that you? 🙂 🙂

      yes, the experimentation will continue. 🙂 the fact that this is my fave pasta, i have to make sure that i will be able to get the perfect taste for my buds.

      i’m always thankful for your message. 🙂


  3. I would want to taste this! 🙂

    So, it seems that you like TOSH, isn’t it? How I wish someday we could eat there. There is one TOSH near DLSU Taft.

      how’s school preparation? good luck. 🙂


      1. Yay! I would really want this wish to come to reality soon. 🙂

        Well I just got enrolled yesterday. Officially a junior student. It has made me realize that time flies just so fast, imagine 2 years left and I’m done with college. Hehe.

        How about you? How are you? 🙂


      2. let us channel our positive energy to the realization of that wish, abi. 😉 🙂

        nice to hear that you are officially enroled for your third year at pnu. yes, time flies so swiftly. that is the main reason why we have to seize the day and make the most out of it to be productive and fulfilled.

        i am still enjoying the break and playing the role of a full-time nanay. thanks for asking, abi.

        keep me posted with your college life. i am happy knowing that you are near to your ultimate dream of becoming an educator. 🙂

        always be safe.
