When putting the garnish on my parsley pesto pasta dish last night, I immediately thought of my great grandmother. Every week, her and her friends would meet at Denny's for breakfast. She would bring a baggy and collect all the parsley garnish from the plates and then use it during the week. She was just cute like that. Parsley always brings a smile to my face - a funny thing to say about a garnish, I know.
