Weekend Herb Blogging #28 Recap and Happy Easter!
Southern California, U.S.A.
New Jersey, U.S.A.
At the home of Cate (Aka Sweetnicks), Tuscan Style Steaks with rosemary and sage were on the menu this week, along with Sweetnicks Chinese Chicken Salad.
Davis, California, U.S.A.
It has been a hectic week for Sher from What Did You Eat, and rather than resort to fast food, for times like this Sher makes Desperation Spagetti. With homemade tomato sauce from the freezer, and chopped fresh oregano and basil, this sounds pretty yummy to me.

Pistoia, Tuscany, Italy
A fascinating thing to make from basil is the drink that Ilva from Lucullian Delights is calling Basilcello. This basil-flavored alcoholic concoction is meant to be served icy cold. As usual, don’t miss the wonderful photos that accompany this recipe.
Even though it is Easter, Stephanie from The Feast Crusade is rebelling against the idea of having lamb, and thinking about the pomelo. Stephanie writes about uses of pomelo skin, gives us the name of this interesting fruit in many languages, and shares a wonderful sounding recipe for Squid, Pomelo, and Green Mango Salad. Stephanie is also drying the pomelo ring to see if she can use it as a remedy for sore throats, so stay tuned for that.

Melbourne, Australia by way of Hanoi
Ed Charles has been visiting Vietnam, and I’m very jealous since that’s a place I really want to go. While he is there, Ed is exploring the connection Vietnamese people have with their food, including this interesting commentary about pineapples in Vietnam.
Sunnyvale, California, U.S.A.
Strata from My Bay Area Kitchen has been doing more gardening than blogging lately, and you can tell when you see the photos of her garden producing early crops. She has enough produce to make a great salad featuring Batavian Nevada Lettuce, mesclun mix, and Nasturtium flowers and leaves.
That’s all the entries for this week, but it’s not too early to get started on Weekend Herb Blogging for next week. Your post doesn’t have to be about herbs (any herb, veggie, plant, or flower is eligible) and it doesn’t have to be on the weekend (just be sure to send me your link by mid-afternoon on Sunday to participate). For more information about the history of Weekend Herb Blogging and how to participate, check out the Weekend Herb Blogging Archives.
