Sometimes? Sometimes you have good timing.  On Saturday, we grabbed the last of the herbs from the yard.  Normally we do it earlier, but this year we kept putting it off.

This has become a yearly tradition (I talked about it in more detail back here if you want to do it yourself, and there’s a bit more about other years here and here).  It comes out great every time.  We use it in pretty much everything we cook.  And I’m really quite firmly convinced you should be doing something similar with any spare herbs you have sitting around.
