Herb Cuts

What a nice, relaxing weekend. I read like a mad woman yesterday and finished my book before bed. Yay!

I have been slacking on cutting back the mint and other herbs. Today, I got a down to business and clipped back all the overgrown herbs. It was a much needed "herb cut". Now, I have a bunch of herbs that I will have to dry for future use. I need to look up some recipes to use the mint in. Any suggestions?

Peppermint, parsley, spearmint, chocolate mint, orange mint, salad burnet, and Ricola mint.

Salad Burnet is such a cool looking plant, that I had to take a macro shot to share. It is all about the leaves for me on plants, and these sweet, tiny leaves take the cake. The picture above shows the clusters of leaves, before they start to fan out. I love running them over the palm of my hand.
