Finally - my own herbs!

tochipotle | Jun 25, 2007 08:13 AM

I used to smoulder with jealousy when I watched Ina Garten jaunt out to her backyard and pick anything her heart desired to prepare a dish (not to mention the flowers for the table as well). Living in a small, downtown apartment, with no access to the great outdoors, my herb garden was limited. But now - we've got a postage stamp sized back yard! It's now brimming with thyme, oregano, cilantro, rosemary, chives, dill, sage, parsley, basil, mint....and tomatoes!!! I'm overwhelmed with options!
This weekend, I made an omelette with chives, basil and thyme picked fresh from the backyard - such a treat. (I could hear the Barefoot Contessa soundtrack in the back of my head the whole time....)
I'm looking forward to my first summer full of herbs! I know there are tonnes of options - but there have to be things I haven't even thought to do with them all... Do you have a favorite dish/drink/etc to use your abundance of herbs?
