We're Off To See The Tin Man...

Today we're headed out to see my niece, Ruth, play the Tin Man in The Wizard of Oz at The Company Onstage.  I'm going to make a light Lenten lunch that I think you might enjoy for dinner tonight!

Lenten Pizza!

Whole Wheat Naan Bread (or Pita) * Tomatoes

Basil Leaves * Garlic * Onion * Pepper/Salt (optional)

Here's How Ya Do It:

First, Prepare your Pesto as follows:

     of garlic in a blender.
2.  Blend on Medium while pouring olive oil inside.
3.  Add Pepper/Salt to taste.
4.  Blend well.
