A Useful Herb

In January, Lois Sutton, PhD, presented "Winter Herbs for Houston Gardens" to the Norchester Garden Club.  She is a great speaker and shared cuttings from some of her herbs in her presentation.  I took several of the Rosemary's since I hadn't worked with herbs.  Your can view the Herb Society web site by CLICKING HERE 

 I learned that a green Rosemary twig will root very readily in water.  Here is my Rosemary Cream Cheese Eggs Recipe that is easy and quite different.

Rosemary Cream Cheese Eggs

From Star of Texas Bed and Breakfast in Brownwood Tx

4 eggs              ¼ cup cream                3 Tbsp. cream cheese
3 Sprigs fresh Rosemary (snip off small pieces)

In a bowl, whip eggs with cream.  In a greased skillet, scramble egg mixture with rosemary until slightly runny.  Add dollops of cream cheese and melt into eggs to make creamy.   Serve hot with                                                                                              fresh fruit and Canadian bacon..  Serves two.

If you get sprigs of fresh rosemary from the store.. strip off the lower leaves and place in a glass of water and they will root.  Then put in a pot to have your own supply
