Solstice bread follow up

Okay so I made the bread again this morning, would have done it yesterday but when the temp climbs to 104, turning on the oven is so not ideal. Anyway made it about 6 this morning, took some slices while it was still warm and made me a chicken sandwich and wrapped it up for lunch. Have to say was one of the best things i've eating in a long time. Very fresh, and although the bread if fairly dense it makes for a nice light sandwich. To make the sandwich even better, I used homemade pesto mayo, spinach and tomato. Sooo summery and good

Pesto mayo:
1 cup fresh chopped basil.
1/4 cup Parmesan
1 tsp salt ( i use sea salt
1/4 cup olive oil
2 tbsp pine nuts

pop it all in the food processor till you get a paste

Then add 1 cup mayo (use light if you need to, doesn't effect taste much)
Mix really well or pop in the processor for a few seconds then jar and let it get really cold and set overnight. I Find letting any pesto product taste better after it has sat overnight to soak up all the flavors, but can be used fresh as well.
