... to think that DP didn't have to eat all the pesto.

I made about 200ml of fresh pesto this afternoon. I had some bolognese sauce for me and DS (DP is vegetarian). AIBU to think that DP is a total scoffyfucker for eating the whole lot? I didn't even get a taste (apart from the very small taste for seasoning while I was making it).

200ml is not enough. I would have scoffed the lot as well.

Bluestocking Sun 15-Jun-14 21:25:17

OK, it wasn't enough, but given the amount of basil I had, it was all I could make! Are you trying to make it My Fault?angry

Me too.

LTB no mercy. (I love pesto)

LineRunner Sun 15-Jun-14 21:26:39

If it was lovely, which it obviously was, I would have had that scoffed in seconds.

I concede defeat - it was my fault for making such a laughably small quantity of something so delicious! Win-win (kind of). I'll make a vat next time and invite you all round!

Would love to be able to make my own pesto (off topic I know)

My dh makes the best pesto in the world ever. It is our Summer favourite, in the garden , spaghetti and pesto, chilled white wind, strawberries, Wensleydale cheese....heaven.

Wine not wind!

You are hoist by your own parmesan.

YABU for not giving us the recipe

annabelcaramel Sun 15-Jun-14 21:49:34

Homemade pesto. Mmmmmmmm. And I could leave it sitting next to DH for a lifetime safe in the knowledge he would not go near it. This thread has just decided supper for tomorrow. For some of the family grin

YANBU. 200 ml of pesto is like 2 jars worth. You're only supposed to use a couple of teaspoons per portion.

If I made that much, it would be frozen in ice cube trays and I would want it to last for months.

What did have that was swimming in pesto?

Line runner, you crack me up!

FunkyBoldRibena Sun 15-Jun-14 21:58:44

Chilled white wind. *chortle

FarelyKnuts Sun 15-Jun-14 21:59:45

Homemade pesto is awesome though. My DP makes hers with pecans added as well as pine nuts. It is so so good. I would scoff the lot too sorry grin

I will happily share a recipe (or several) - I referred to [[ http://www.theguardian.com/lifeandstyle/wordofmouth/2010/sep/02/how-to-make-perfect-pesto this]] but used garlic even though Felicity says not to.

Bluestocking Sun 15-Jun-14 22:05:49

What happened to my linky?

FarelyKnuts Mon 16-Jun-14 16:29:18

Has to have garlic. This is non negotiable! <stamps foot>

dexter73 Mon 16-Jun-14 16:34:32

Sounds delicious! You will have to start hiding it or your dh is going to start piling on the pounds eating that much pesto in one go!

CaffeinatedKitten Mon 16-Jun-14 16:53:42

I've hated to look of pesto for years, but having read the recipe it actually sounds lovely. Must buy a pestle and mortar.

MissAnnersleyismyhero Mon 16-Jun-14 17:24:16

200 ml is loads!! shock and I'd have scoffed it all myself definitely having pesto this week now

Bluestocking Mon 16-Jun-14 18:12:06

Good point, Dexter, I'll make him aware of just how fattening it is!
Kitten, real pesto is completely different from the ready-made in the jars, don't resist!

FarelyKnuts Mon 16-Jun-14 18:38:56

It's good fat though isn't it? <blocks ears in case anyone dissuades me of this notion>
