I love fresh herbs

Can I just say that fresh herbs make me really happy?  I mean seriously.  We live in a world where people get happy with $4.00 coffees and the newest cell phones with all the trendy features.  If you are a little blue, I suggest putting down the antidepressents and picking up the oregano.

And while you are at it.  Crush it between your fingers and stand there and smell it.  It is here that you'll find personal satisfaction, no bliss.  The newest "thing" at the mall can't bring you happiness.   I promise.  Picking thyme off their stems, well maybe. 
So for tonight, I'm re-heating the big pot of chili we've been eating.  I've given the recipe before. This is a very tested recipe at the Osbornes. 

And salad with homemade ranch dressing.  The recipe is from and it is there that my herbs will go. 

I'll probably make my mom's pop overs.  I've been thinking about adding thyme and parmesan to the batter.  I'll let you know how it goes.  Here's Mom's original recipe. 

So throw away the antidepressants and sniff a little chives.

And remember to be happy.
