Cilantro…homegrown…a sensory delight!

Well, I know I said that I was going to write more about my pets…and I will! I promise!! But I just don’t feel like talking about them tonight.

Tonight is going to be garden related. I made a Chicken Fiesta Soup tonight. I’ve made this soup before, so it’s not really that big of a deal. But tonight, instead of store-bought cilantro (which I usually use) I used cilantro from my garden. Oh my goodness!! What a difference in flavor and strength! Normally when I make this soup, I have to use 3/4ths of the bunch of cilantro that I buy, but tonight….I only used 1/8th the amount that I would have used from the store-bought kind. WOW…what flavor! What a smell!! I’m still sniffing my fingers and I made the soup 7 hours ago!

So, I guess what I’m telling you is… if you like Cilantro (not everybody does…right Lisa!) then grow you’re own! It’s absolutely a sensory delight!!

Big smile

    You’re welcome…anytime. Window boxes would be awesome at your house. You could grow all kinds of herbs! And you’ve got two handy guys to build the boxes for you! 😉

    Hope you had a good time on your day out (sans kiddos)!!
