How to keep cilantro fresh

I love buying cilantro but every time I store it in the fridge it gets bad pretty fast. So I googled my issue and I found that if you cut the stems and put them in water in the fridge it will stay fresh longer. So my experiment is on! Sunday was day 1 and today they still look great, I will be keeping my eye on them, well that is before they get eaten up haha.

Tonight for dinner I had baked chicken wings with sweet potato fries and spinach salad! Yum!
And for dessert I had a chocolate pudding ;)

Oh and how can I forget to mention I have 70 followers! I'm sooo excited! Welcome new followers, I hope you enjoy my blog ;) I love reading all your blogs too!

My husband just told me that I should aim for 100 followers by the new year... hmmm...not sure how I could get 30 more followers in that little time, I'm so grateful already for all my current followers.... So we will leave that at that for now.

This week I have a busy busy week so not sure how much blogging I will fit in ;( I need to finish up my Christmas shopping and have many Christmas parties to attend to tooo. (what to wear will be making me crazy)

Yesterday my husband put up the stocking

And it was not long before Zoe decided she did not like them hung.


  1. Love Zoe's reaction to the stockings, makes me miss our little cat.

    Thanks for the tips on cilantro, I just did a recipe today with it and I have some left over. I will try your tip.

    I follow Mckmama's blog as well!

  2. "Sorry", I already follow your blog, but may be I can duplicate myself ;-)
    The cilantro tip is great, I really needed it, and may be it works with mint too, I will try.

  3. Hahaha....them damn cats! Too cute though...I love her furry little self....

  4. I love that you got pictures of the stockings before Zoe and after. Too funny.


  5. The cilantro looks good.

    Ahh, are the stockings for the cats too? That is funny! We have stockings for our dogs too.

  6. Your dinner looks so yummy!! I am not a huge fan of cilantro, but use it when fixing mexican for the hubs! thanks for the tip!
