Why hello lovely!
Yes, I am talking to the pico.
It’s no surprise that I love Mexican food of any type and from anywhere. I crave it more than anything in the world. You have so many good options like margaritas, beer, CHIPS & QUESO, tortillas, fajitas, quesadillas, enchiladas oh my. I could go on and on about it, but I will stop to save you all from my ramblings.
This weekend we planted our first ever herb garden. I grew up having large gardens in our family but since then I’ve never lived in a place where I could put one in. Even though we are moving in a couple of months we decided to go ahead and plants some herbs in some fairly large planters. I am ecstatic that I am no longer wasting money each week on different herbs and I can now go into my backyard and get what ever I need. We are currently growing: thyme, rosemary, cilantro, parsley, strawberries, tomatoes, jalapeno peppers, and squash. We are starting off small compared to my grandmother’s garden that is about the size of a 1/2 football field. My grandmother had to buy a golf cart to go in between the rows to get the vegetables. ONE DAY!
I was able to use some of our fresh cilantro from our backyard for the first time with this recipe. Too bad we don’t have a mango tree in our backyard or it would be empty!
