It's the weekend again, the time when food bloggers love to show off their pets. I believe Eat Stuff is the blog that started this trend, with Weekend Cat Blogging. Then Sweetnicks got the ball rolling for the dog lovers with Weekend Dog Blogging. As I mentioned last weekend, I don't have a dog or a cat. That's why I decided to show off my herbs on the weekend, at least until they are buried in snow. Here is a photo of the oregano which is still holding on in my garden, even though it's October.
Even though I live right smack in the middle of Salt Lake City, I do have a pretty big vegetable garden. Along two sides of my garden I have herbs of many kinds. I love the perennial herbs like this oregano most, because these perennial herbs poking up are one of the earliest signs of spring in my garden. Oregano makes me think of Greek food, like Souvlakia or Greek Lemon Chicken. If you're in a Greek food kind of mood, I have recipes for both those dishes in my recipe box.
P.S. Mahanandi is joining the plant blogging fun this weekend with a surprise plant blogging ingredient. Check it out. And while you are at it, scroll down and see some amazing photos of delectable looking Indian food on this beautiful blog.
