#14 / 52 Food Adventures: Lemon & Lime Thyme

IMG_5776

Is there anything better than fresh herbs?

The dried versions are not even comparable and I find I'm using more and more herbs in every day cooking.  Peanut loves flavor and we all love thyme.

I found these two different kinds of thyme at a farmers market...

Unfortunately the gorgeous variegated leaves of the lemon thyme did not survive me forgetting to water them for several days.

It's so sad.  I hate to kill plants and I despise wasting food so this really is a crime.

I've been cooking with them regularly but I've hardly taken any pictures lately.

Peanut likes thyme added into his scrambled egg and quiche and all 3 of us devoured this French Onion Chicken dish.  It's one of Peanuts favorite meals and the thyme really sings in it.

How sad is that lemon thyme?

Oh and there is a extremely noticeable difference in the smell of lemon and lime thyme.  The lime smells just like lime and the lemon smells like lemon balm and lemon grass.

The flavor difference in a dish is slight but it's there.

I'm gearing up to try thyme in ice cream and in the crust of my lemon bars.

What did you try this week?
