While I was ready to say goodbye to the summer heat this year and was highly anticipating fall - I love the crisp weather and all the fun activities, clothes, and decoration that fall has to offer - I was just not ready to say goodbye to fresh herbs just a few footsteps outside my door.
This year, I decided to try and grow two of my favorites inside:
The fresh thyme I moved inside from outdoors, I purchased fresh basil from a local nursery, and the third plant is a little random. It's just a succulent that grabbed my eye while at Home Depot.
I was so happy to see a lot of new growth on the basil and thyme when I came home from our weekend road trip. We used both tonight on our green beans - delicious!

This is my favorite recipe for dressing up green beans with fresh herbs. Except I add garlic (to pretty much everything), use basil instead of tarragon, and substitute shallots for red onion when I have them on hand............
