Lunch Box Chronicles: Day Ninety-Four (Enjoying the Last of Summer Bliss - Homegrown Basil, Walnut Pesto on Spelt Right Pizza Dough)

End of the summer bliss, on to too much homework!
School is upon us along with so many other obligations and distractions that this every day blog is becoming more like a once a week blog.

But we are still here.  Still talking about healthful and tasty foods for your kids.  Still sharing our recipes, albeit at a slower pace as the pace around this house kicks in to high gear.

Just to pose a question out there to other parents, do you think your kids are getting too much homework?  Spencer still is befuddled by the idea of being in school for 8 hours and then having 2 to 3 hours of homework piled on after school.  When is there time for a kid to be a kid?   I tend to agree with my kid.  Enough is enough.

For our end of the summer treat, we picked the remaining basil from the garden and made a pesto with walnuts, evoo, garlic, sea salt, and grated parmesan cheese.    We placed the wonderful pesto on Spelt Right pizza dough, along with slices of garden tomatoes, and a bit of grated mozzarella, and baked at 450 for about 10 minutes.   The result was a yum, and a longing for the summer that is soon to be fall.
