Rosemary

Apparently, rosemary is all the rage. I am kind of the fence about the taste, personally. Is this an acquired taste? I just can't quite get over the bath product flavor to it...

However, I am in love with the idea of rosemary skewers. Aren't they pretty? I keep running across them, so I am guessing it is some kind of food trend.

These next two pics are from Cupcakes and Cutlery. Check her blog post here for this delicious shrimp recipe.


The Pioneer Woman also had a beautiful presentation of rosemary on her blog a few weeks ago.


Directions:

Ingredients
Stalks Of Fresh Rosemary
Fresh Mozzarella Cheese, Cut Into 1-inch Cubes
Marinated Artichoke Hearts, Drained
Black Or Kalamata Olives, Drained
Salami, Sliced Thin And Folded Into Fourths
1/2 Cup Olive Oil
3 Tablespoons Balsamic Vinegar
Pinch Of Salt
Fresh Ground Black Pepper (lots!)
Sprinkle Of Ground Thyme
Preparation Instructions

Strip all but 1 to 2 inches of rosemary leaves from stems. (Leave leaves intact at the top of the stem.)
Use stem to spear cheese cubes, artichoke hearts, olives, and salami in whatever order you’d like.
Mix dressing ingredients until emulsified, then drizzle over the top of the skewers. Serve immediately or refrigerate for later.

And further proof that the world is telling me I must eat rosemary....my fries tonight at Smashburger - french fries tossed with rosemary, olive oil, garlic and other herbs.

I am getting there...

Hi, Katie,
I tried the rosemary-seasoned chicken spiedini at Macaroni Grill yesterday, and it was delicious. Plus, I think it was only 390 calories which is less than some Lean Cuisine dinners!!! Thanks for all the tips!!
Love, Aunt Angie
