Winners of the Herb Garden Kits

I had almost forgot about this until I read Becky the Surburban Matron's post about blog clean up. It inspired me to wander through a few of my own posts for the last couple of weeks in order to tidy up.

I found some unfinished business in the form of the herb garden kits that I had planned to give away. You would have thought I'd have remembered these but I stuffed them off to side. Far far away from the bar. In this house if you want to be remembered you stick pretty close to the wet bar.

So without further inane commentary from me, here are the winners.

Blue; my favorite herb is basil also. I firmly believe that chopped fresh tomatoes, minced garlic, onion and fresh basil drizzled with a little olive oil is a food group all on it own. I've been know to top eggs with this mix. Congrats! Please send me your address.

Val; technically garlic is not an herb but it is so yummy and vital for everyday life it will count. Plus, you covered yourself with the basil response. Nice save! Congrats!

Stacy; I don't think you can over do in the herb department. Dill and greek yogurt, nom, nom. Oh sure, you're supposed to put cucumbers in that mix but I'm not real big on them so out they go. Congrats! Please send me your address and your little herb kit will be winging it's way to you.

One last thing,

Linda from Life on a Colorado Farm grower of all things beans and taker of beautiful pictures has sent me a box o'beans. This is like the third time now and I love love love her for it. So let's all give a big shout out to Linda.

Thank You!

Drop by her place to view some of her lovely pictures and leave her a little comment love. She deserves it. It is because of her that I have fantastic bean dishes to bring to you for meatless Monday.

Okay, I think that takes care to my "tidy up" the blog mission. See you all later.
