|Variety pack oregano|
I'm out of Oregano. Many of my favorite dishes find this herb in the ingredients, so I really miss it. Before I could put it on the list to remind me of the Things I get to do today while shopping for groceries, I smacked my palm to my forehead and said, "Well, du-u-u-h." There's a huge patch of oregano growing in my herb garden.
Scissors in hand, I marched out the front door to the space where oregano is shouldering out all nearby plants. Whack, whack and I had a fistful for the food dryer.
A few days later, the dried leaves were ground and ready to fill my spice container. But the smell was not familiar, dead-center, oregano. I'd planted a "variety" seed packet in this space, and the "exotic" results I now had left me unsure.
But miracles are always in the wind. Scruffling around in the freezer this morning, I happened upon my bulk jar of oregano and was able to top off the kitchen container. Maybe if I eat more of this stuff my memory will serve me better and I won't need to do herbal experiments on myself. Miracles are always. . . .
