Don’t waste the HERBS! I’ve been so disappointed this year not having fresh herbs of my own to cut. Last fall when we revamped our landscape design I removed the herb and strawberry garden. What was I thinking? I know at the time it was getting overgrown and if you’ve ever planted herbs you know they can take over an area in no time. Many of them have small hair link runners that are almost impossible to kill off. Needless to say I’m buying fresh herbs right now and most of the time the bundle is so large it’s never used up in one recipe so to get my moneys worth I’m using what I need to cook with and adding the rest to a farmhouse bowl filled with water and a few cut flowers from my garden. May as well have a pretty bouquet for the kitchen, right?
I specifically purchased the herbs for this CUCUMBER SALAD recipe, not only is it easy it’s so refreshing on a hot summer’s day. If you follow me on INSTAGRAM you’ve heard me talk about shedding unwanted fat from this ole’ bod! I’ve been sharing my healthy food menu, to me photos of clean eating food are inspiring so I’ve been on the hunt for new recipes lately. I’m doing two protein shakes a day and one healthy meal.
Note to self, plant an herb garden next spring in a container!!! I’ll be able to control its growth much easier that way.
