What's for Dinner #131 [old]

With weather in the 65 degree range, it's seeming more like late spring than late winter here in the NE. In line with that, my son had a craving for pesto, and since I was completely unhappy with the stuff I had frozen last summer (would turn brown at the first contact with air), I asked my husband to pick up some basil when he went shopping on Saturday. Little did I know that he would be coming home with a case of basil from the Restaurant Depot! I've been making and freezing pesto (banishing that disgusting old stuff to the trash!) for the better part of the afternoon, so, not surprisingly, tonight's dinner will be....Pesto! Since I'm not in the mood to make trenette, we'll have it with linguine, which I will cook with some string beans, but I refuse to add the potatoes, which is something I never get. We'll also have some thin-sliced grilled chicken to go along with that.

Even if winter may not be fast-retreating from where you live, you can still dream of spring, can't you? What are you making for dinner?
