Indigo with a side of Creamy Basil Pesto Sauce

Indigo in pictures. .

“What is in this measuring cup mom????”

“Yikes mom, this water is to cold!, how about hookin a girl up!”

Next “logical” step, insert self into pot

And what can Indigo do to make up for the fact that I now how have to clean up over 87 pots and pans for the 3rd time that day...she just has to give me one of these :

So after that was all done, I asked Indigo to go and prepare our meal since I had to clean up that little darlings mess…this is what she came up with!

Creamy Pesto Sauce over Gnocchi


(1) 8oz block of cream cheese
3 tbs of basil pesto
2 cups whole milk
2 tbs of flour (for thickening)
½ cup of Pecorino Romano
Gnocchi or other pasta of your choice


Melt the cream cheese into your milk at a medium heat, then add in your pesto. Mix until well blended then add in the flour to thicken slightly. Right before serving mix in the Pecorino Romano.

Another picture of Indy? Don’t mind if I do.
