The "bank whereon the wild thyme blows"

This morning Edmund, Garth and I headed for the hill where we plan to plant 40 hybrid oak trees. The day before we had several thunderstorms blow past and the cuffs of my pants were soaking by the time we walked up through the grass. While digging and pulling up the sod I noticed a wonderful aroma, but it wasn't until it was right in my hand that I realized what it was: wild thyme. A quick Internet search shows that it is thymus serpyllum, or "creeping thyme", and it is supposed to be a great nectar source for bees. It was a wonderful discovery... any suggestions for thyme-inspired dishes to make with it?
