a NEW recipe…to use up my basil with

basildressing

 

Happy Friday!  I kind of, sort of…pretty much forgot about the basil that I planted early this summer.  It didn’t seem to be doing all that great in the heat, but my hubby brought in some last night and said there was quite a bit more.  So, I tried this NEW salad dressing recipe.  The recipe called for 2 1/2 cups of chopped basil.  Normally, that might be a bit much to harvest all at one time, but we had plenty of it!

Here’s the Recipe:

a NEW recipe…Basil Butter

I’m loving my indoor herb garden!  {see previous post with details HERE}  Today I tried a NEW recipe and used up some of my basil that I’ve been growing.  YUMMY!  I got the recipe from Paint Chips and Frosting (that’s a fun blog name, huh?!?).

Now I’m on the hunt for more great fresh herb recipes…the only catch is, my garden is kind of small at the moment, so the recipes can’t call for more than a cup or so of basil, parsley or cilantro, and only a tiny bit of chives…but I have PLENTY of dill!   Does anyone have any fabulous dill recipes???

Have a great day! Do or learn something NEW!

miscellaneous NEW stuff

I realize I haven’t been posting much lately!  Life happens…ya know?!?  So, what’s NEW?  Well, a bunch of minor, miscellaneous STUFF!

The photo above is my NEW indoor herb garden that I got for Christmas.  I LOVE it!  Since I keep it in my pantry, I pay MUCH MORE attention to it than I would if it were outside!   I started it exactly one month ago…and the dill is going wild already!  I can’t wait until I can actually harvest enough to use! I’ve been psych-ing myself up for harvest time by pinning ideas…check out my ‘Fresh Herb Recipes’ board on Pinterest.  I have dill, cilantro, chives, two types of basil and parsley. Fun!…and if I photography any food dishes, it’ll be nice to have fresh herbs on hand to make the photos more interesting, right?!

I tried a NEW soup recipe….and ok, WHY have I never made homemade tomato soup????  This recipe was DELICIOUS!!!

I recently visited my Mom and she was raving over my sister’s homemade tomato soup.  So I texted my sister and asked for the recipe…(she just got it online, but didn’t keep it)!  So this recipe linked HERE is one of the top google searched tomato soup recipes, and OH.MY!…it is REALLY yummy!

My hubby and I keep saying we need to convert more to a plant-based diet.  Well, this recipe is a keeper and our vegan Daughter-In-Law will be soooo proud of us if we eat in this style more often! 🙂
