|Last flowers of summer|
One of the things that I'm really going to miss about summer is all the wonderful fresh herbs that I have available to me right out my back door. Since I travel during the summer weekends, and work alot of the week, it's hard to tend to a large garden. My husband has all my plants rigged up with a sprinkler drip system. So all my pots, hanging baskets, and urns are lovely all summer long. I have a large pot of perennial herbs right off my kitchen. There are wonderful perennial ( they come back each year in case you didn't know) herbs growing, like thyme, tarragon and chives They all grow together, and come back bigger and better each year. In the spring the chives get lovely little purple round balls of color. So pretty. I'm getting ready to freeze some and I will post about that later.
I have been loving the chives in my scrambled eggs this week. They give the eggs a great flavor. They have a mild oniony taste, but fresh and not at all overwhelming. I just snap off a few strands, fold them over a few times and using kitchen shears, snip them right into my eggs.
Plate them up, add a few slices of bacon, and you have a great BFC or fast track breakfast. This week, I'm trying to stay away from the grains, but any other morning some coconut bread or a few slices of ezekial with butter would be just great.
Wishing you all a wonderful and relaxing weekend....and maybe some scrambled eggs with herbs too!!
