>more herb mousses

It is no mystery that I am drawn to herb mousse.

Because mousse also means moss. If you've ever admired a beautiful moss-covered rock or tree bark on a rainy day you know what I mean.

My friend Ivy used to recite passages from Nancy Drew's Moss-Covered Mansion. I didn't really get Nancy Drew. I was into Sherlock Holmes.

Because the word mushroom also comes from mousse - a rationalization of sorts for the mostly inexplicable allure of both mushroom and mousse.

And because it's green. It can be red, too. Sorry I didn't strictly limit the list to herbs.
Happy belated Christmas, everyone.
