Using the Aerogarden in cooking: Day 52

We're at a point now where we're ready to use the Aerogarden herbs for cooking. Here's where we made some fried rice, harvesting some of the cilantro to add some flavor.

Lisa also tried cooking pork tenderloin for the first time, using Martha Stewart's recipe for sage and garlic crusted pork tenderloin.

Boy, this turned out great.

The tip of the day from the Aerogarden was as follows:

"For best appearance, turn grow pod so fullest growth faces OUT and the thinner side IN towards the garden's center".

This is something I've never really tried before, but it makes perfect sense--you want the thin side to receive more light and the side with more growth to maybe slow down a little.
