Kitchen Tips: How to store fresh herbs

Like fresh flowers!

Cut off the ends to get a fresh stem.

Put them in a glass with a small amount of water.

Put a plastic bag over them.

Store them in the fridge.

If you don’t use them in a couple days, just make a fresh cut on the stems and change the water.

They’ll stay perky and fresh and not get all mushy!

Meatless Monday Meal Ideas- Eggs In Hell

Eggs! There are sooooo many ways to make eggs, you could have them every Monday and not get tired of them. Plus they’re fast to make, and healthy, too.

Eggs In Hell (sometimes called Eggs In Purgatory): Basically eggs poached in marinara sauce. You can used jarred sauce, or make your own. You can even add other things like bacon (which makes it not Meatless Monday- maybe Meaty Friday or something instead). This makes a great breakfast, lunch or dinner.
