Like A Storm in the Desert

I ordered produce plus from my farm this year, and so I got a pound-and-half each of basil and garlic. Yesterday, I made a huge amount of pesto and froze it in meal-size portions to eat throughout the fall and early winter. I was so proud of myself, and so looking forward to eating that delicious, organic pesto for months to come.

And then, this morning, there were specks and streaks of blood in Mac's stool.

You know what that means, right? It means I probably can't consume any more dairy products for the duration of our nursing relationship. So no pesto for me. Not even a tiny bit.

it's the parmesan cheese that's the problem. had I known about this lactose deal in advance, i would have done some without it.

But the good news is that it should freeze for a LONG time so you can enjoy said pesto down the road. :)

I've been eating pesto like crazy lately thanks to supersuppers and had no idea what was even in it, only that it was goooood! I'm sorry you'll have to do without. Could something else be the culprit with Mac?

That is so depressing.

I made one batch of pesto and maybe the basil was bad because none of us really liked it. I thought I liked pesto.

I don't suppose you want the extra 0.95 lbs pine nuts I have now, huh?

Just wanted to give you some hope. Tre has blood in his stool and I went off dairy when he was 2 months old. I started adding dairy back in when he was 5 months old and he was fine with it. I hope you don't have to wait too long to eat that pesto.
