The inspiration behind tonight's dinner was the big bag of fresh herbs that greeted me this morning on my desk at work (thanks, Bob!)
The bounty, fresh from Bob's garden, included basil, sage, rosemary, and marjoram.
I used some of the basil for my caprese salad. Then used the rest to make a basil simple syrup (1-1/2 cups water + 3/4 cup sugar + a big bunch of basil, brought to a boil and simmered for a few minutes). It makes a fantastic addition to lemonade or summer cocktails (see my 6/30 mint lemonade post).
Don't you worry, sage, rosemary & marjoram...
I'll be back for you, my pretties.
