a NEW salsa recipe

salsa

Happy Friday! Well, as you know…I’m trying NEW recipes that use up some of my fresh herbs from my indoor herb garden.  I had lots of cilantro to use up, so…I ask  you….what is better than fresh salsa????  YUM!  I tried this NEW recipe from Purple Chocolat Home (she always posts great recipes!)  I liked using my blender and it was a VERY quick and easy recipe to pull together.

I can’t decide which I like better – chunky salsa or not-chunky salsa.  I adore BOTH really. 🙂  Have a great Friday and DO or LEARN something NEW!

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?!

Have a great day!  Do or Learn something NEW!….and if you need a good laugh, check out this funny   hilarious video.  {I about cried, I was laughing so hard!!!}
