This is going to be the first installment (hopefully of many!) of Tuesday Tips and Recipes (TTR). For about a year now, I have been wanting to share some tips and recipes with you, but I felt there were a couple of obstacles. First, I am not a great a cook. I'm not terrible, but my husband is a waaaaaaaaaay better cook than I am! So, first obstacle, who wants to try a recipe from someone who isn't a good cook? Second obstacle, I usually just post DIY projects, and I didn't know how to add anything else in.
Well, obstacles, be gone! I am not the best cook, but I do try. I figure that will make the recipes I post even more legit, because if I can do it, anyone can! ;) And as for the format concerns, it's my blog and I can post whatever I want, right? So, I have decided that each Tuesday I will post a recipe or a tip that I want to share with you!
TTR #1: Prolong the life of your fresh herbs by putting them in water.
I love fresh herbs, but I hate that they don't last very long. My husband, resident chef, said he heard that if you cut the ends and put the herbs in water, much like you would for fresh flowers, they would last longer. So I gave it a try. Folks. I am not kidding, the parsley in this pic is more than four weeks old! I know it is starting to look a little droopy, but it is more than a month old! Crazy! The cilantro was going on two weeks, and it was still perfect! I have been doing this for a couple of months now, and it is fantastic! Not only do the herbs stay fresh longer, but the refridgerator looks so fancy inside! ;)
I'm off for an MRI soon. Remember that bruised knee I got on vacation last month? Yeah, it's having problems and the meniscus might be torn--pray for me!
I'll talk with you soon! Enjoy the Son today!
