I have to write about these while I can still taste them. I made them for my boys tea this evening and ended up eating the remaining few myself wishing that I had made twice the amount. I had not intended them as worthy of the blog really, but they are sublime and make my mouth water just thinking about them.
They would be great for a party snack and they are really versatile in that they wont dry out if left until cold. All the herbs proudly came from the garden ...
2 large knobs melted butter
1 tblsp olive oil
3 garlic cloves, finely chopped
a bunch of fresh mixed herbs, chopped - parsley, marjoram, sage or thyme, whatever you have
There was complete silence this evening about 2 minutes after these were served - each boy with buttery juice dribbling down from his chin to his elbows - it's on evenings like these, when they enjoy it so much, that it makes cooking at home so enjoyable, so rewarding and utterly satisfying. To nurture my children through the food that that I cook everyday is something that will form them as people, it will be with them for the rest of their lives. Producing home-cooked, home-grown food daily for your family is the ultimate nurturing activity which will be carried on for generations.
