My friend Regina started a shoot for me last year and I planted it. Thanks Regina!
I cut it to make fresh brewed mint tea. It taste s00000000 good!
Just wash it good and it's ready to use.
Add it to a pot of water and 3 family size tea bags and bring to a boil. Remove from heat and let it brew for a while. Mix with sugar to sweeten according to your taste. I use almost a cup for a gallon. We LOVE sweet tea in the South!
One day recently, I decided to have a quick, simple lunch on the patio for hubby and me.
It was a beautiful day in the neighborhood, I can't believe I just said that. Mr. Rogers would be proud. lol
I quickly whipped up some chicken salad , sliced some carrots and tomatoes and voile.
I almost forgot to garnish my tea with a sprig of mint. There--just the right touch.
My dishes, place mats, napkins and glasses are JC Penny
Napkin rings are Pottery Barn
