June 11 - Day 32 of IVF

Jennie's next ultrasound and estradiol (ESS-truh-DYE-awl) level check appointments are Wednesday and Friday of this week. I'm anxious to see how her egg production is coming along. Last night we had a nice dinner at home and watched a movie together. We tried a new recipe -- Jennie made some fresh Pesto using basil from our garden and stuffed a couple of steaks with it for me to grill. Yummy... it was different, but tasty. And served along with a salad, it was very filling.

LINK OF THE DAY: What is Pesto, you say?

1 cup firmly packed fresh basil leaves
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1/4 cup pine nuts
2 cloves garlic
1/4 to 1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil
salt to taste

Add all ingredients except olive oil and salt to food processor or blender. Once you begin mincing the ingredients, stream in olive oil. Mix to desired consistency. Add salt to taste.

Until tomorrow,
Dave T.
