Endangered Herbs: Basil

My grocery store is notorious for not carrying items JUST when I need them. Around the end of November it was Rosemary. No where was there any fresh rosemary to be found. The weekend before Christmas it was fresh green beans – you can’t make green bean bundles without green beans! So our early Christmas celebration at mom and dad’s went on without green bean bundles.

This time – basil. It was no where to be found. A huge problem as I was planning on making a big ol’ batch of fresh pesto to munch on for the next few days. I had to get a jar of Classico basil pesto to make due. If this were summer of 2007, I wouldn’t have this problem. HEB is finally adding a new Central Market-HEB hybrid store on my side of Houston; conveniently across the street from my office. This area severely lacks a good grocery store. I cannot even begin to express how excited I am at the thought of being able to get basil, sushi rice, Tazo tea, and peppered jellies all at the same place! What a concept. No more of this hitting-three-grocery-stores business!
