This Crock Pot White Bean French Onion Soup- didn't use fresh thyme and it was fine- used parm and asiago cheese, and roasted garlic french bread toasted and broken into pieces on top. And extremely filling.
Reuse an old tree to make a log pathway in your garden. Good use of "yard" trees and other wood that can't be milled; works much better in climates without termites. Good drainage under the log rounds will make the path last longer.
I love this idea---- Herb Garden Idea - short of space? These fragrant herbs have been planted in between pavers as a mini kitchen garden between the house and and pool. Edible ground cover is a great space-saving idea + softens hard landscaping.
