Ladies Who Lunch and Munch on Parsley
As soon as I got home, I went straight to my herb garden and picked all the parsley. The only other herb I planted was chamomile and that never did too much out there in the garden. Then there was the basil plant that the neighbors gave me, but that died down a while ago.
So now what to do with all that fresh parsley?
Some last thoughts on parsley usage...
1) Remember how to make a Green Door. I could swear I got this recipe off the internet and it was the most delicious drink ever, but I can't find it after several Google search attempts.
Think it went something like this:
A bunch of parsley chopped in food processor
juice from one lime
6 oz. grapefruit juice
shot of vodka (optional)
topped off with soda water
2) Make parsley pesto. This recipe looks good.
3) Make chicken and parsley cream.
4) Dry it.
Parsley seems to play second fiddle in the herb family, but that's what makes it more exciting to try out as the main herb in a recipe, don't you think? It's kind of like adding an unexpected twist to the usual ol' recipes.
