Day 321/366

German Creamed Herb Soup is easy to make and a comforting meal.
I've been languishing with what can only be a relapse of chronic fatigue, something I haven't had for quite some time.
Our meals over the past week have been fairly simple but nutritious.
In today's rushed lifestyles, I don't think we give enough credit to fresh herbs for supplying us with nutrients.
I know I'm guilty of, at times, thinking a quick meal can be had from a can or a packet.
Tonight's meal took me less than thirty minutes to cook, the most difficult part had to be chopping the freshly picked herbs.
Here is a link that gives you some idea of the nutritive value of many commonly grown herbs.
I have a lot of difficulty growing fruit and vegetables in my garden but I grow copious amounts of herbs because I can grow them in containers, which are easily protected from persistent wildlife.
At the moment I have more than enough oregano, thyme, lemon balm, sage, lemon grass, bay and kaffir lime.
My rosemary, mint, parsley and rocket is struggling but improving now that the warmer weather has arrived.
Tonight's dish was economical and nutritious and tasted delicious.


  1. Sorry you are suffering from chronic fatigue SP. I hope it passes soon for you. OK about your garden. At least you can grow herbs that count in your culinary purposes. We are oldies now and only just beginning to experiment in herbs other than parsley and mint - Dave

    1. After 5 days of doing nothing much more than sleeping and reading I'm up & about today. Thanks Dave.
      Good luck with your herbal experiments...they are full of nutrients and deserve a place in every person's diet!

  2. I hope you are feeling much brighter Sweet Pea, CFS is so debilitating How lovely to be growing your own herbs and then using them in your cooking - very satisfying :)
