Herbs – You got to love them!

Hey everyone!

I’ve had a rough couple of days, I’ve been feeling super tired and I’ve been in pain due to a heavy virus infection. Most likely I will be going back to the doctor’s office tomorrow. Next week I got some good stuff coming up, one new recipe every day from Tuesday – Monday next week and not only that but there will be something new and fun to look forward to, that’s all I can say for now. (I will be posting more info on this on Sunday so stay tuned.) I’ve been talking about posting a new recipe this weekend. I’m going to make a wonderful sandwich/sub this weekend and I’m super excited about it.

I’m working on a new food-thingy to blog about and as I said above, I will be posting more information on this on Sunday. Let’s talk about making your own herb garden.

During the summer I always buy three or four sometimes even five different herbs, and I plant them out in flowerpots that I place on our deck in our backyard. That way they get all the sunlight they need, and I remember to water them often enough to keep them alive. Every single time I cook during the summer I go out on our deck and grab some fresh herbs that I chop up and mix together and add to the dish I’m making. Fresh herbs are always a great thing. You can use them as a garnish or you can use them as a great seasoning to the dish you’re making. I always have thyme( I like lemon thyme the best, but any thyme will do.), Oregano, parsley, chives, and rosemary. If I have room for it and If I can get a hold of a good sage plant I will buy that as well. Sage is perfect for many dishes including Chicken and potatoes.

You don’t have to have a herb garden, you can easily make your own little herb paradise in your patio or in the deck in your backyard or on a balcony if you live in an apartment. Buy some flowerpots ( You can easily buy cheap yet beautiful flowerpots online, or in your local store.)  Place them on a small table in a corner. Take the herbs out of the pot that they originally came in and re-plant them with fresh and new soil in your flowerpot. It’s easy to do and it pays off! I really recommend doing this, you can use fresh herbs for anything and it makes the dish not only look great but also taste amazing.

I will be back tomorrow for a new post and I’m super excited about it. I hope all of you have an amazing Thursday so far, and I hope to see you back here tomorrow for a new post.

Happy Thursday from my side of the Kitchen to yours, keep up the good cooking and I’ll see you again tomorrow.
