|A mixture of herbs picked fresh from the garden|

Your Best Ever!
Last night, I made a chicken stir fry - this is not unusual. I make it pretty regularly and the basic ingredients are usually the same - either white or dark meat chicken, tomatoes, and lots of fresh veggies. But, the key is always the seasoning. Each time I vary it with different herbs and spices, depending on my mood (and the cupboard). Sometimes it's spicy, sometimes mild, sometimes lemony or tangy or garlicky. Sometimes it's creamy - sometimes it's saucy or brothy. Tonight, after the MOTH had finished making "yummy noises," I asked him what he thought. He said "It's your best ever." That's when I told him - it was seasoned entirely with fresh herbs from my garden.
Once he was done making fake "MEDIC!!!" jokes (haha), he was suitably and appropriately impressed. I just feel happy and proud. I did it! I made my first meal with stuff from my garden and it didn't totally suck! I can't wait until I can start replacing store bought ingredients with fresh tomatoes, peppers, and other veggies from the garden.
