Why is fresh basil so hard to find?

Another compromised dinner last night. What was supposed to be a delicious pasta with ricotta cheese, grape tomatoes and BASIL turned into decent pasta with ricotta cheese, grape tomatoes, and oregano.

Basil was suspiciously missing from the regular and organic sections at the grocery store…Oregano’s leaves aren’t big and beautiful. They don’t smell like summer. And they certainly have a weird texture. Just adding the parsley cooked with onions might have been a better shot. Either way, this is why I’m starting to make things for 2 servings instead of 4.

Yesterday’s banana bread was a different story! Added a good amount of oat bran in place of about half a cup of flour, added 30 grams less sugar, more nuts, delicious!

The ingredients.
