Garden Update

Hi All!

I wanted to give you guys an update of my starter seedling.  If you recall, I planted basil and lavender seed in this starter kit I purchased from Walmart.  I’m starting to see a little sprout… excited.  My son enjoy watching it grow and he even track his grow progress on the door panel of our family room.  Well here it is….


I’m on my way…..LOL.  Well, at this rate I may have something by August.

Since I’m so impatient, I decided to also buy vegetable plants.  I purchased some herbs for my garden, but since the weather is a little unpredictable now, I have them in my kitchen window.  Hopefully, we will get some consistent weather soon. 

I decided to get some of the herbs I use often which are; basil, parsley, thyme and tarragon.



I use Miracle Gro and terracotta pots



I’ve already use them in pasta, on pizza and on baked chicken.  I love having them and I will definitely purchase more.  Can’t wait until the weather gets warm.

Have you planted your herb garden yet?




Happy Labor Day!!!

Happy Labor day everyone!  For me Labor Day is the last Holiday to BBQ….. 😦

Jerk Chicken


This is my version of Jerk Chicken.

I marinated the chicken over night in olive oil, red wine vinegar, red pepper flakes, thyme, cinnamon, nutmeg, all spice, Cajun season, lime juice, two jalapeno peppers sliced, and salt & pepper.  Next day, just simply place on the grill my lovely husband prepared for me. 

Enjoy the rest of your Labor Day!!!

I may do a little online shopping to take advantage of some of the great sales out there.
