When you have the munchies...instead of chips or cookies or as an appetizer's for your guest...your choice of thinly sliced meat...

And of course, dried basil is a must in your favorite soups, chowders, and red sauce.....and, you are in luck...the perfect place to get it is....
Need recipes...search through the past months of this blog or the recipe archive on the website.
Happy and deliciously good...fall season.
