Arugula Pesto Cream Cheese Spread
Several weeks ago I innocently sprinkled a few gallons of water on a section of bare dirt in my greenhouse, and soon the most beautiful bed of volunteer arugula appeared. After many nights of lovely baby arugula tossed into salads, it became increasingly clear the arugula (which is a rapidly maturing plant also known as 'rocket') was going to win the Eat Me Or I Bolt race if I didn't quickly come up with some way to use a much greater quantity of it at once. Behold arugula pesto!

You didn't know I have a kitchen garden blog? Where do you think all the food from this one ran off to?
