    8      Oz.           Cream Cheese
    1      Clove         Garlic, -- minced
    6                    English Muffins -- halved
   12      Slices        Deli Baked Ham, Cut To Fit Muffin Halves
   12      Slices        Tomato
    4      Tbsp.         Pesto -- * see recipe below
 Remove butter and cream cheese from fridge and allow to soften. Cream
 together until fluffy. Blend in minced garlic.
 Place the muffin halves on a baking sheet. Spead each with a portion of the
 cheese mixture. Then top each muffin with a slice of ham and a slice of
 tomato. Spread pesto on top of each tomato, using about 1 tsp. per tomato.
 Place a dollop of the cream cheese mixture on top of that and bake at 400
 degrees for about 20 mintes or unil the cheese has melted and is slightly
 4 cups fresh basil leaves, washed and stripped from stems
 4 cloves of garlic
 1/4 C olive oil
 1/4 C pine nuts
 1 cup freshly grated parmesan cheese.
 Blend until a paste forms...you may have to shove it down with a spatula
 several times in the blender container. A food processor does not do this
 as well as a blender!
 Freeze and cut into 1 cubes any left over pesto and serve with pasta.
