Make the thyme for chopping?

How do you pass the thyme?

Do you know your herbs?

Do you know your herbs?


 

DA STORY:

What time is the thyme located on this clock?

(It’s a kind of a trick question because I didn’t have 12 or 4 herbs.)

BUT!

If the herbs are located at 12, 2, 3, 5, 6, 8, 9, 10 o’clock, then what time is the thyme located on the “Herbal Clock”?

If you guess the other herbs you get an extra gold star! Or should I say an extra luscious flavor to clip, snip, dip or sip?

Herbs reach all of your senses.

Their smell will heal your worn out soul when you chop or tear them up and place them into summer veggie salads.

They look stunningly beautiful placed in glasses of iced lemonade, wine spritzers, finely minced in a pool of your most prized extra virgin olive oil, sprinkled with sea salt and freshly ground black pepper for dipping gorgeous hunks of Italian bread.

They feel gorgeous when you touch them in the pots outside your back step, rub their full, ripe leaves without even picking them, and spread their subtle scent on your neck before hugging your guests as they come through the door.

Their taste, freshly plucked from your garden, will add depth and dimension to every dish you eat, every day of your summer and beyond.  So different are each variation of herbs that you grow, and each bed of soil where the herb is raise, that every bite will tell your taste buds a different flavor story.

The sound of chop,chop, chop, as you mince a fist full of herbs at the end of a tech-troubled day will bring you back to the glory of this wondrous earth, and the gifts that are in abundance all around us.

And lets not forget the sound of everyone who smells all those herbs you place in your drinks, their salads, sandwiches, sauces, meats, pasta, rice, oils and maybe even a little of your favorite liquid soap!

They will inhale deeply, ask “what IS that?!”

And you can tell them if you have the thyme.


 DA QUOTE:

Wrap fish fillets, sliced veggies, and other quick-cooking items inside foil packets with bundles of fresh herbs and throw them directly on the grill; the steam will release the herb’s perfume and flavor anything contained inside the pouch.

DA RECIPE:

"My Little Chick-a-Peas" taste much better when made from dried, soaked and slowly simmered organic chick peas from Wholefoods bulk section.  Come up and see them sometime!
