An Herb Garden for Mother’s Day

Mother’s Day is only two weeks away. Have you thought about gifting mom with an herb garden for Mother’s Day?

Most everything we eat at our house is made from scratch. We love cooking and baking with fresh food which includes herbs. Using fresh herbs is really quite easy. We grow them on our patio simply clipping off what we need. After clipping with our kitchen shears and rinsing the herbs with water we pat them dry. Herb Scissors - Simple SojournsAnd then … our glorious Herb Scissors come into play. With a snip here and a snip there we have perfectly chopped herbs. These herb scissors are truly one of my favorite kitchen tools! I can cut my herbs five times faster, without crushing them, thus retaining the herbs’ flavorful oils and aromas.

WDW Animal Kingdom Flamingos

I think it curious that these flamingos have little to no of the well-known pink/coral color. Then I realized that as with all living things, there are different species. These lovely flamingos live at Walt Disney Word’s Animal Kingdom. They are ‘Lesser Flamingos’ and a bit smaller than their long-legged pink relatives.

Gluten Free Seasoned Bread Crumbs

I’ve been using a well known brand of bread crumbs for over 25 years. My mother used the same brand before me. I’m sure that’s why I was still buying it.At least until recently. In our effort to take preservatives and chemicals out of our diet and because I am a gluten free vegan, we upped the ante with our previous recipe. This gluten free seasoned bread crumbs recipe is now tried, true and loved! Homemade bread crumbs are easy and inexpensive.

Bread Crumbs 7 simplesojourns.com

Ingredients:

– 12 slices gluten free bread – I used odds and ends that I had in the fridge. The variety actually gave the crumbs color and extra taste.

– 1 teaspoon onion powder

– 1 teaspoon garlic powder

– 2 teaspoons fresh chopped basil

– If you’re not dairy-free: 1/2 cup shredded fresh parmesan cheese.

Add whatever seasoning you want or leave them plain. 

Bread Crumbs 2 simplesojourns.com

1. Toast 12 bread slices and cut into small pieces or cubes.

2. Using a food processor, pulse the bread cubes to a crumb consistency. I chose to use our Magic Bullet processor although my food processor works well too. I was able to process approximately one slice of bread at a time. 

Bread Crumbs 4 simplesojourns.com

3. Mix all the bread crumbs together in a large bowl. Add 1 teaspoon onion powder, 1 teaspoon garlic powder and 2 teaspoons basil. This is where you can make the bread crumbs taste exactly how you like them. Add whatever seasoning you want or leave them plain.

Bread Crumbs 6 simplesojourns.com

4. After the crumbs are mixed together with the seasoning, spread them evenly out on parchment paper until they are completely dry. I covered them with a lightweight tea towel and let them set overnight.

5. Scoop the bread crumbs into a container for storage.

I chose to store mine in a Zip Loc bag that I labeled with the date. Store in the freezer and enjoy!!

A Shadow Over Japan

It’s not very often you’re able to see your shadow from way up high in an airplane. NY (aka David) caught this remarkable image with his iPhone while descending into Narita, Japan.
