Oregano and the Cottonwood Tree

This week I am focusing on Oregano.
We also know this herb as Marjoram.

I still have fresh Oregano in the garden.
Oregano has healing properties.
As a tea it is used to relieve coughs,
 bronchitis and digestive problems.
I never seem to be able to dry enough for winter use.

This week I am learning about salads.

I always make composed salads.
Often I will add apples or oranges to our greens.

I am learning about all sorts of greens.
I like leaves. I like them raw and cooked.

We have chosen Tuesday as our baking day.
Last week we baked a glutton free pumpkin pie.
It was delicious. This week we are planning to bake
glutton free cinnamon rolls. Now that the weather is chilly
having the oven on feels cozy.
We want to become glutton free bread bakers this winter.
I am looking forward to when we start baking glutton free cookies.
I like cookies.

I have begun reading about the Cottonwood Tree.
It is a native tree here on the Tall Grass Prairie.
