Does this not look positively delicious? Well it is. I got the recipe from here: Pinch of Yum . Which I originally found on Pinterest. Incidentally, I am relatively new to this pinterest fad. I had seen it around but hadn't signed up for it because I thought it was just another social media thing. Finally I checked it out and it turns out that I like it a lot. Mostly due to the fact that I am a very visually inspired person and pinterest is all about photos. AWESOME. So I have definitely gotten into the swing of that thing.
I still have a whole half a pan left of this because my boyfriend isn't really a fan of sweet things - but I am very much a sweet tooth. It works out for me. Although, when his friends come over, anything I've made is immediately gobbled up and gone.
I haven't done any planting of any kind in years. The last time I can remember planting flowers was when I was nine or ten years old. I distinctly remember planting Zinnias in our family's backyard. Right now though I'm living in a rented apartment and I got permission from the landlord to plant. We've only been living here since September and where we were before had no yard. I've bought several seeds already but I need to get more, as well as more supplies.
What I have already are Zinnias, mixed flower seeds for the shade and full sun, marigolds, basil and parsley. I need to buy more herb seeds and maybe some more flowers. I also need potting soil and some containers for my herbs. This past summer I bough herb seedlings from the local farmer's market and they fared okay. It was hard because I bought them when we were living at the old apartment and I didn't have a place to put them where they could get a lot of sun - so they didn't grow as much as they could have. Still, I really enjoyed having the fresh herbs to cook with. Hopefully this year it will work out better.
