All About Spices 'n Herbs

Not only will we taste a few food samples I'll have prepared ahead of time, but I'll have someone here to answer any questions you have about growing herbs as well as container gardening. Angie Lassig is a state board certified nurseryperson.

Bring either a favorite spice or herb and an idea how to use it, or a question about a spice or herb. I plan to demo a few things we can all taste, then the time will be open for guests to share their ideas for their favorite herb and/or spice. What is more exciting than food and the many ways it can be seasoned?!

It will soon be time to purchase herbs for our gardens or for container gardening. With some fun recipes in hand, information from those who come to this event, and a taste of some foods using interesting spices and herbs, this should get everyone excited to try some new things and grow fresh stuff! If I can't get a person to teach us how to prepare a container for growing herbs, I will have handouts on this subject.

Light snacks will be served (that go along with our MeetUp subject). I'm thinking: Saffron Rice, Salmon with a Pacific island-inspired spice on top, White Truffle Cream w/ cheese on a cracker, and one other dish (undecided right now), and a dessert.

I'll have hot chocolate on hand.

    Re: the salmon. I forgot to tell my daughter to broil the salmon on Low. As a result, the top got a little too broiled, thus making the Trinidad spice harder to taste. I do this salmon on low for about 8 minutes, so the top spice is moist and the fish is, also. Just so you know. Thanks, all, for coming last night.

    The samples of food will be served early in the evening. Thus, if the weather becomes a factor, you'all can have a snack of each thing (which will be prepared prior to your arrival), get a recipe of all the offerings to take home with you and head home. Just so ya know :)

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
