Do you remember those hugh, ginormous, chalkboard coffee mugs I picked up last fall? Well I am no longer using them for hot chocolate, so I decided to plant a Coffee Mug Herb Garden. The grocery store I shop at sells small potted herbs in the produce section and this week they were on sale so I decided it was time to grab them and get them planted.
I picked up cilantro, rosemary, parsley, and chives; all things I cook with on a regular basis. In the summer I have them growing fresh right outside my kitchen door, but I do long for the taste of fresh herbs about this time of year. I think fresh cut taste so much better than dried any day.
One of the best things about the mugs are the chalkboard portion. There’s a big circle that mimics a flower on each mug and I wrote the name of each herb on the mug. Super cute right? Oh, and did I mention the mugs were free? Even better. Now I can enjoy some fresh flavor in my dishes, I can’t wait to use them.
