I have to keep this post short because I still have to pack my clothes for our weekend in Munich!!!! Yaaahhhooo! I think I really need this time-out. It feels like I am always running out of time as of late…or since I got my new job that is. Well, it is not really a new job, I have been working in the same company since April this year. First, as I was employed only as 75% part-time. Hehe! Yup here in Germany there is such thing. You can work for 40%, 50% 80% and so on depending how many hours of work you have. I have only a 6-hour daily job so the 75%. But I was offered another position which, at the moment, is really challenging because there is a lot for me to learn still and that also means longer hours. So I am kinda pressed for time lately and I know I have been neglecting this blog because of that! Good thing Armin is not complaining (yet). But I am sure that when things settle down and I get my system and routine in order then I would have time again to write…but no worries …I will try to get some good pics from our 3-day trip to Munich so I can share them with you next week. They have Octoberfest at this time of the year so we are guessing it might be (too) crowded and a little crazy…can’t wait!!

For now, I would like to share this simple and easy recipe of Fresh Tomato and Basil Pesto. I made this about a month ago when I got a lot of basil leaves from my container garden and some of the last fruits of my tomatoes. It is perfect as dip or sauce for pasta or even as a spread for your favorite bread. A bit sweeter than the regular pesto sauce I make from basil because the tomatoes were really sweet. Try this easy recipe for fresh tomato and basil pesto. perfect as dip or sauce for pasta or even as a spread for your favorite bread. | www.foxyfolksy.com
