It's Monday Again!

Hello March!  I’m hoping that the new month is bringing some milder weather for everyone on the East Coast/Midwest US.  We got another bout of rain, but it’s been beautiful despite that.  So, no complaints here.  Well, aside from my younger child constantly reminding me that this school year is almost over and she will be a senior before long.  *sigh*

Okay, enough of the mom woes.  Hahaha.  How’d you fare last week?  Did you have a good February?  If not, what can we do to help inspire you?

Reminders:

1. Flash Challenge!  Your flash challenge prompt is: herbs.  Give me 100 words or a graphic and I’ll reward you with my undying love and admiration. 

2. Last week’s challenges:

It is the same as coriander. Here, in the US, the herb is cilantro but the seeds are coriander. Weird, huh? (I like it, too.)

Re: Original - A Cutting Exchange - 198 words
Yeah, I wonder why? We just have coriander (the green part) and ground coriander (seeds) at the supermarket (don't ask me about specialty stores; I am a philistine who doesn't enjoy cooking! ;-P)

Re: Original - A Cutting Exchange - 198 words
Because Americans are weird? But I'm assuming its because cilantro is the Spanish name for coriander.

I just refer to it as Mexican parsley since they both look alike to me.

Yeah, I'm often getting caught sniffing the herbs at the grocery store. Sometimes it's the only way I can tell them apart.

I do look around before I do it, because you never know how someone might react to that. Did catch a little old Hispanic lady laughing at me one day.

Or amused by the goofy white girl who couldn't figure out if it was parsley or cilantro! This is one time when the curly parsley comes in handy. LOL

This is interesting as I don't know what Mexican parsley is... we do have Italian parsley (as well as regular) here, and it too looks a lot like coriander.

RE: Re: Original - A Cutting Exchange - 198 words
When I ring people up and they have cilantro or parsley, I have to ask them which one they have because how similar they look. I made one customer chuckle when I called the cilantro Mexican parsley, because here it is used in Mexican dishes.

I just looked Mexican parsley up because your comment confused me. I thought you were saying it was something different from coriander (cilantro), but the web is telling me it's the same thing! Anyhow, I think I get it now!

In NZ we call parsley the curly-leaved variety in this article, whereas the flat-leaved parsley in the article is called Italian parsley here, and yes, it is a lot like coriander leaves and easy to confuse the two.
