Herbs and Spice and Everything Nice!
Guess who the proud owner of this herb and spice rack is to your left? . . . . ME! I am so happy to have it. I love it! Mom actually set me up with all these containers and labels. She is so awesome! I got the shelving at a garage sale for a couple dollars and now walla! I love it and use it everyday! I used to wonder how people could use so many different herbs and spices. How did they know how and when to use them? Well, I am still learning, but, a lot of it comes from just trying them out over time. I'd follow a recipe and try a new one out. You get used to a flavor and then you can match it with other flavors. It can be really fun for me and more over when the herbs or spices you are using in a culinary fashion have medicinal action as well, it's delightful to learn! We have the power with in us and around us to create, heal, and enjoy life. This week I challenge us all to try out some herbs and/or spices. Learn about their characteristics and how to use them. This is a great time to plant some too! I look forward to what we all have to share! Have a great week! P.S. Sorry for the funky placement of the pictures. They were not cooperating, so I gave up trying. You get the idea.
