I couldn’t capture the brown hare hanging out in my herb garden but I have seen one secretly sit there and taste my herbs .
My herb garden…
OK I don’t have a lot but Rosemary , parsley, and mint, are…
I love Rosemary and Mint a lot. I put both in almost everything I cook, and in most of my drinks. Sometimes even in my favorite cup of tea. I love the aroma and the flavor comes out of it.
I love to use fresh rosemary to make some Rosemary garlic oil.
Rosemary garlic oil goes well with few fresh lemon drops and warm Rosemary bread.
I just heat some olive oil, 2 cloves of garlic, and few sprigs of Rosemary for few minutes (Just a little heat not boiling heat). Then let it completely cool. Get rid of the garlic cloves, and add some fresh Rosemary into a clean bottle. Pour the infused oil into the bottle and seal. Store in a dark place.
Can keep for a week or so.
So yummy and flavorful.
I thought I would share some pictures from my herb garden. Well, it’s not a huge garden. I wish I had but I am happy with the few plants I have. I am dreaming of a huge herb garden, and few vegetable and fruit plants. One day…
Until then I am going to enjoy these herbs.
I move my rosemary all the time just because I like keep it somewhere I can smell:)
I found couple of scallions sitting in a corner of my herb garden which is great. I stopped buying scallions since I have plenty for cooking.
Last year, hubby planted few more herbs for me. Looks like some are returning. Happy to see them again.
I am thinking of getting a Lemon tree, and a basil plant. I use lemon a lot in my salad dressings. Basil is my favorite herb but I find it’s very hard to keep the plant longer and alive. Will see how that goes.
After the little visit to backyard, I ended up bringing some Rosemary with me, so I thought I will make some bread.
If you visiting me here for a while, you know that I buy Rosemary bread regularly but you probably don’t know that sometimes I like to bake it home too.
So, today I I baked a bread at home. Let me tell ya, this bread is so popular in our home. We always run out of it in the middle of the week.
The smell of baking bread in your own home…Oh my! and it’s a Rosemary and garlic bread. Now you can imagine the smell… Can ya?
Now, to this I would say.
Happiness is homemade…
Can you smell it? I wish I could share a slice with you. I hope at least you got a baking bread mood, or having few herbs. Who doesn’t like a slice of warm fresh Rosemary bread with Rosemary oil,pinch of salt, and few drops of lemon juice.
Brown hare loves herb garden. Good stuff…
I don’t mind sharing the herb garden with the brown hare.
Do you like herbs ? If you like, which herb you like the most?
Enjoy your weekend!
