Week 8: It's About Thyme!

It's about thyme for another post!  If you haven't guessed already, week eight's photo is a picture of time.  I mean thyme, not time.  This picture was taken in April of 2011.  I had bought a bunch of herb plants for my flower garden the year before.  Thyme was one that survived the winter and came back strong the following year.  I love thyme!  It smells so good!  I always like to go out to the garden and rub a sprig between my fingers and smell the highly fragrant aroma that results.  Oregano is another one that smells wonderful!

The other day I tried a recipe from Pinterest for Homemade Salad Dressing, it had dried thyme in it.
It was really good!  I've made it twice so far.  It goes really well on a kale/spinach salad with dried cranberries, raisins, and sunflower seeds.  Click here for the recipe.

I've also found that fresh thyme leaves are very good in mashed potatoes.  Just add to the potatoes after they've been mashed.  So good!

Do you like thyme?
