Last night I utilized the green onion chives cut from the herb garden. When I went out this morning, like a dummy, I hadn't eaten anything. Not good!! I just had to have some garlic chives and the smell was intoxicating. I had put out a beef roast to thaw and kept seeing creamy pasta with garlic chives. Oh goodness, it was so delicious in my head. I thought it would also go perfectly with dandelion fritters too. I did stop there and came in the house, though I kept thinking I needed to pick some chickweed for a nice edible bed beneath the roast. Oh my, I'm drooling. Anyway, I managed to pick the nettles from my small patch and will definitely have a cup of nettle tea but will dry most of them and I picked some violets just because!! By the time I came in my socks and shoes were soaked. If I just hadn't seen those dandelions out in the middle of our lawn I'd have been okay - but no, I just had to tromp through all the standing water to reach them. Geez!! I actually thought I was smarter than that!!!
