The first recorded mention of basil, in records dated to pre-206 B.C.E, states that it “exists only to drive men insane.” For the Greeks, and later the Romans, basil was associated with hatred. To grow, it had to be sown with swearing and ranting. However, basil later became a symbol of love in Italy. Sicilian folklore associates it with both love and death, and in Moldavian folklore a young man who accepts basil from a young woman will fall in love with her. In India, holy basil (called Tulsi) is a sacred plant associated with Vishnu and Tulasi, another tangled love story with several variations. The Hindu tradition associates holy basil with purification, protection, love and eternal life, and it is used in burial rituals. Basil is also associated with the voodoo love goddess Erzuli and is recorded as being used in love spells for divination and ensuring faithfulness. In the Christian tradition, basil is said to have grown at the site of Christ’s crucifixion and is part of the St. Basil feast day celebrations in Greece. One European legend claims that basil can generate scorpions, possibly even inside someone’s skull. This scorpion connection is often linked to the Greek story of the basilisk, which in turn is linked to basil in the name basilicum. In some folklore, basil is said to have been used to ward off both the look and bite of this king of serpents. Reflecting the plant’s conflicted history, the Victorian language of flowers has two meaning for basil: common basil signifies hatred and sweet basil conveys the sender’s best wishes. 🗽🕊🌱

Mozzarella stuffed meatball And salad with balsamic sauce ~~. #meatball #mozella #tomatosauce #basil #parsley #lemon #basamic #dinnerready😋 #happyandenjoy

When we lived in San Diego (courtesy of the #usnavy) we came across #temeculaoliveoilcompany at Old Towne. At their store there you could literally try samples of their amazing products. So.Good. My favorites are the Fresh Basil and Roasted Garlic olive oils, but they have so much more. Olive oils, soap, lip balm, tomato sauce, and more. Obviously I'm nowhere near California now, but my husband got us some of their oil as an anniversary gift.
Anyways, I just wanted to share a favorite while I wait for our (early) dinner to cook😋

After this weekend’s adventures and a full on return to work today, I think crispy baked gnocchi is going to be on the cards this week. Tomato, basil and mozzarella is hard to resist... anyone for a plateful?

More from the garden 🌶🍅🌱 I counted six watermelons and four pumpkins, that I could find. Probably 100+ cherry tomatoes, mostly unripe.
