Sun dried tomato and olive pesto – with linguine

Still on crutches, which is starting to get really old. However, I’ve gotten a bit more used to them, which means I’m somewhat? back to my normal routine. Notice that I use the term ‘normal’ loosely. Anyway, the weather in Boulder has been really schizo lately – I thought dropping temperatures last week meant fall…

Super-awesome guacamole
