This week has been a little bit less jam packed than the last few weeks, and I've been able to spend a lot of time in the kitchen.
We've been eating a lot of veggies lately. One of my favorite veggie-based meals is Portabella Mushroom burgers. They are so quick & easy, and taste wonderful to boot.
I've been doing some preliminary garden planning as well. I'd like to get my seedlings started in the next week or so. I can't wait to have some fresh herbs and veggies! My plan for this year is lots of beans, lettuce, swiss chard, tomatoes, chives, basil & peppers. I'd also like to establish a perennial herb garden in our front yard. We've got a big raised bed and I'd really like to rip out some of the decorative shrubs that are there, and plant some edibles.
So far I'm thinking: Chives, Thyme, Sage, Rosemary, Oregano, and Mint (in a container). If you guys have any other perennial herbs you'd recommend, please let me know!
For now, I'm perfecting my homemade yogurt, and working on writing up recipes for some of my favorite dishes.
