Decorating with Herbs for fall

Did you know herbs aren't just for cooking?  

Decorating with herbs is a simple way to add natural beauty to your home for fall! 




Did you know that decorating with herbs can bring a natural beauty to your home?  This summer I planted mint, parsley and oregano in container gardens on my patio. Now that the cooler temperatures are here, I thought I would bring a few clippings inside and display them in my home. I Sprinkled them here and there in different rooms to enjoy their natural fragrance.  



Here are a few ways you can decorate with herbs for fall:

Aim to make your meals taste fresh by using herbs when you cook.  Keep fresh herbs near by in the kitchen by placing them on a window sill or kitchen counter.  For a farmhouse look, place sprigs in tin cans or mason jars.

Make a fall center piece for your dining room table by gathering a mix of fall flowers and herbs.  Clip flowers from your garden (or store bought) with sprigs of herbs and place them in glass bottles along the top of a table.

One of my favorite ways to display herbs is to hang them in mason jars on a re-purposed wall vase .  If you are interested in reading about the re-purpose just click on the link to find out all the details on how to make one.



Next week I'll share with you more decorating ideas and a simple recipe using mint.

Fall Broccoli Gratin

Warm up the cool temperatures with this savory broccoli gratin. This recipe works well for large gatherings and well as for small family dinners.  The leftovers can be stored in the refrigerator and heated back up in the microwave.  It is the perfect blend of creamy cheddar cheese and nutritious broccoli.  You will never know the main ingredient is broccoli.



INGREDIENTS:
one head of broccoli 
6 ounces of sharp cheddar cheese
one and a half cups of seasoned bread crumbs
1 stick of butter
1 cup of sliced onions
1 teaspoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon dried thyme leaves
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
1 cup of vegetable broth


Preheat oven to 375 degrees.  Combine cheese, bread crumbs and 4 tablespoons of butter in a bowl and set aside.  In a large skillet over medium heat, melt 2 tablespoons of butter, add the onions and sugar; Stir often. After about 5 minutes add the broccoli, salt, thyme, pepper and vegetable stock. Cook on medium heat for about 20 minutes. Transfer into a buttered casserole dish. Sprinkle with half of the bread crumb mixture and combine. Add the remaining bread crumb mixture to the top along with 2 tablespoons of butter.  Bake until topping is golden, about 20 minutes.
