I just started growing herbs a few weeks ago. I have basil, thyme, oregano, cilantro, chives, parsley and rosemary. So far I used the basil and cilantro. I must admit that fresh herbs are so much more flavorfull than the dried version from the super market.
Now I am on a quest to find more recipes that use fresh herbs. This fits in perfectly with my plan to only cook from scratch. For the last 2 weeks I succeeded in making meals from scratch. It definitly saved money. I normally spend anywhere from $60 to $80 a week for groceries and my bill was around $40 for the cooking from scratch weeks.
I am also going to make bread this weekend. Years ago, when I was a young SAHM, I baked bread by hand all the time. This was before bread machines came on the scene. I do have a bread machine, but I am just going to use the dough cycle and then bake in the oven so I can have horizontal loaves instead of vertical.
I wish I had more time to devote to my new endeavor, but I work full time and there is only so many hours in the day. Maybe I will win the lottery one day so I can go back to being a housewife again. hah
I will be taking photos and post them here and over at Life is a Box of Chocolates for my weekly Sunday Brunch edition.
