Home cooking with Hetty – kitchen talk.


I’m going to post a post here everyday. I haven’t been so far, but I’m going to do so from now on. Starting today. So let’s begin. Today I’m going to talk about fresh herbs. During the summer time I grow my herbs on my deck in the back yard. During the winter I do have  hard time with getting my herbs to live. That’s the obstacle living in a country this far up north. An obstacle that’s all it is, and it doesn’t keep me from trying. I know it should be a no brainer, but I simply can’t figure out how to keep them alive in-doors. The winter up here is killing my herbs. Guess we got a herb killer in the area. But seriously, I can’t seam to get them to stay alive during the winter, and buying a new set of herbs every other week just because they can’t make it becomes rather expensive in the long run.  I think I might have to come up with a new strategy. I can already see the headline for that post already. “How to keep your herbs safe from the herb serial killer. ” Or it might go something like this ” How to escape the herb serial killer.” No matter how the headline turns out, well I’m not even sure it’s going to be a headline at all, considering I at this point have no Idea now how to not get them killed. So If I were to write a headline  today it would go something like this. ” How to get your herbs killed by the herb serial killer.” you might laugh  but it’s actually not funny, well it is a little funny actually. But it’s the truth, and ‘i’m not going to lie, the struggle to keep the herbs alive and away from the herb serial killer is real, oh yeah it’s real alright, I can definitively sign off on that. Well, I’ll give one an update when I’ve figured out the whole herb serial killer problem, I promise.  I did promise to write a herb 101 post a few days ago and I haven’t gotten around to do that just yet, but I will. Hopefully I will write a “herb 101.” post later today.

From herbs and serial killers to something else, something I like to call fall-feast. Let’s be honest, there are a lot of days and weeks of fall before we reach Thanksgiving. What I like to do during the fall is to light candles, eat comfort food, drink a good bottle of wine,  maybe some hot coco with marshmallows. Pumpkin spiced latte is also something I’m really looking forward to. I’ve also thought about making my own pumpkin spiced latte. There is only one problem. I can’t seam to find pumpkin spice anywhere. oh my have I looked. It’s no were to be found.Then I discovered this website called Iherb I’m not really sure it it’s legit or not. But from what google could tell me, several blogs tells you that you can buy pumpkin spice at Iherb so it can’t be that bad i guess. I might actually consider ordering pumpkin spice and pumpkin pie spice from this site later this fall. I’m also planning to make pumpkin pie this fall, if I succeed I might actually make pumpkin pie on Thanksgiving as well. This fall is going to be filled with good comfort food, new recipes and so much more. If you are reading this, then you got something to look forward too. This Up coming Saturday, September 9th I’m most likely going to a farmers marked down town, they only arrange this once a year witch is very sad because In my opinion they should host a farmers marked every weekend, if not every day.  But this little town I live inn is kinda strange, just like every other small town around the world. at night, on a week night if you walk the streets down town it’s exactly like a ghost town, or something like a deleted scene from The Walking Dead or something. Well, i’m looking forward to this years annual farmers marked, and I do hope it lives up to my expectations this year.

Tomorrow I’ll post my weekly dinner menu. I’m still working on it and missing a couple of dinners but it will be ready tomorrow. I hope to see you back here tomorrow for a new post. 🙂

Posting a photo of today’s dinner! ( recipe might come later this fall.)
