If procrasti-grinding was an Olympic sport… well. Let’s just say I’d have more gold medals than Beyoncé has Grammies
Last year my friend Nick said all the tiny yellow locust leaves fallen on the gutters and sidewalks of my street, almost made the street look illuminated.
It’s that time of year again.

Basil, another antimicrobial
There is still something to speak about Italian tomato sauce. It is amazing to see how little details bring a whole thing work. While Angela’s family brightened me up for the use of water after boiling tomatoes, Alessandro’s family taught me the use of basil leaves.
We put many basil leaves when we boiled tomatoes and add some while we bottled the sauce, too. Alessandro’s mother kept saying,
"Tanto basilico, Tanto Tanto! ( Lots of basil leaves, a lot, a lot)"
I thought it would be just for the taste and Italian’s love on basil. Yet my further research tells that it is not only for that but basil is also an antimicrobial ingredient. Indeed many researches are going on using antimicrobial property of basil on food and medical products.
