GTTC: blue cheese chive butter (and giveaway winner announced)

Herbs are all I'm able to grow this season after my garden failures. However, it's not too much of a challenge to find ways to use them. For this week's Garden to Table Challenge, I served a blue cheese chive butter (among other treats) for my turn to host my book group.

Last week, I touched upon the virtues of using a muddler, the specialized bar tool used to make drinks such as mojitos. It's such a must have item that I bought one to share. Each link to the GTTC posts has earned an entry to this giveaway and the winner is... Diana from the blog Kebun Malay-Kadazan Girls. Diana, please send me an e-mail with your address! :)

  1. Yum, Herb butter is awesome. Delicious.

  2. Blue cheese chive butter, now that sounds lovely to me.

    Congrats to Diana - the winner too.

  3. I want to link up my harvest and would be a regular, but other than potatoes there is not much growing in my green space, well actually I do have salad leaves. I think I will link them up.

  4. One can get a lot of mileage out of herbs. Sorry about the rest.

  5. Blue cheese chive butter. This sounds delish! And it looks delish too. Sorry about your "garden failures." Veggie gardening is not easy.

  6. Yummy-licious. So excited Thank you so much. We just came back from a long weekend fishing trip, was so surprised and happy.

  7. Herb butters are some of my favorite things. I'm thinking blue cheese chive butter would be great on fresh potatoes.

    I think it's not too late to revive the garden for fall. You could plant some things now that would mature before frost or be OK after frost - carrots, beets, greens, peas, potatoes, maybe even bush beans or zucchini. I'm planting fall potatoes next week and hope to get in a lot of other fall crops this year.


My awesome gardening friends...thanks for leaving a comment! I don't typically repond here, but I love knowing who you are so I can visit your blog as well.

btw - if you're trying to show me nude Miley Cyrus photos, sell me nikes or viagra or antibiotics, or encourage my lovely garden readers to visit your site on solar panel construction, or seo-whatevers, sorry, but I'm not publishing your comment. If you want to moderate my blog - well, I can't keep you too busy, and the pay would be horrible. And lastly, no. I'm not interested in Club Penguin cheat codes. Thanks anyway.
