I absolutely love cheese fondue!  It had been awhile since making it, but I had a friend from Chico, CA come and visit and we had some!  It was delicious!!!  I love to have apples, and white wine of course!!  Or red, whatever you prefer!  Red goes well with the chocolate fondue also!


We also had broccoli, cauliflower, and green beans, which were not a favorite of mine. I much preferred the broccoli and cauliflower.  I also roasted some garlic, and had bread squares for dipping.

Fresh Garden Herbs, Oregono, Mint, Chives, and Basil

These are the herbs now in the garden. I love having the chives and mint on hand. The chives for cooking, and the mint for teas, and water also. The chives grow all year long in some parts of California and the mint also.

Garden Herbs, Shasta County

english thyme in my garden in Redding, California, VeroniqqueUpdate!  My herbs are doing wonderful!  The English thyme is still there and it’s been going for a couple of years now, and the parsley, the chives look beautiful and I can’t believe how well these herbs do over the years.  I just planted some basil, and I might plant some more parsley.
I planted English thyme, Italian parsley, and some regular Thyme.  I had some chives which were already growing in a tiny clay pot for a couple years.  Also oregano, which was in the same clay pot, but  I replanted this year, to be with the parsley and oregano and it seems to be doing much better.

I absolutely love having the fresh herbs on hand to cook with.  They are great for adding to a sautee of vegetables, or roasting a chicken with herbs and garlic.
