Pesto Is My Butter

We do most of our grocery shopping at Costco. These days, Costco isn't just suitcase-size boxes of breakfast cereal. They also sell foods more typical of a cutesy gourment shoppe. For example: Cibo Naturals Pesto. The label assures me that the Parmesan cheese is "non-GMO and rBGH-free." Okay, good, and, more important, the stuff tastes great.

A jar of pesto sauce in the frig changes everything. Pesto used to be a rare treat, once in a while in a good restaurant, once in a long while when my wife was feeling really ambitious. Now, it's the universal answer. Fish? Chicken? Broccoli? Pesto. The morning bagel? Hold the butter, slap on the pesto.
