herbal update #5

The day has finally come: I can use my herbs for cooking!

Last night’s dinner was onion bulgur-otto with baked bell pepper and parmesan fried turkey breast. Delish!

IMG_3422The ingredients – the thyme didn’t grow as much as e.g. basil but let me tell you it smelled amazing!

IMG_3425I love the name bulgur-otto! Risotto, only made with bulgur :-)

I’m as proud as can be! My herbs have actually been surviving for three weeks now =) And they’re greener than ever!

another herbal update

Anyone with a dark apartment and the wish to grow herbs in it, let me tell you: freezer bags are the best ever!

The only thing keeping me worried is thyme. Every single time I tried growing it, it would come out as the very first and die just as quickly. It’s barely holding up this time but with a daily portion of love and a nice talk every now and then its chances of survival are still there.

And in case you’re wondering, it’s basil that grows like crazy.

herbal update

So far it seems to work – my plants are growing. I guess the idea with the freezer bags wasn’t too bad =)

 I’m starting to dream of pasta meat sauce with the fine taste of basil, a summer drink decorated with lemon balm and a green salad topped with parsley and chives.

Mmmh yummy :-)
