Oddly Enough Blog
News, but not the serious kind
Hey Blog Guy, I know you love to cook and sometimes share culinary secrets.
I spoke to an Italian chef, and I think I can help you out. You’ll need a butt-load of fresh basil, some parmesan, pine nuts, garlic and olive oil. I’m going to make a trial batch in my own kitchen while I write this.
I really appreciate it, Blog Guy. Okay, then what?
Now, the chef said the key to pulverizing the basil properly is, you need a mortar and pistol.
Excuse me? I need a piece of army field artillery and a handgun?
It surprised me, too. I was able to find my mortar at a rebel gun show in Libya. I thought it was strange that even Williams-Sonoma doesn’t sell a mortar and pistol combo. Seems like they’re missing a good opportunity.
