garden mystery

 can anyone tell me what this plant is? I'm trying to decide if it's a weed or not. it was here when we moved in, growing among the garlic chives and mint...it smells very strong, sort of like basil but it's not the regular basil.
 i want to know what it is before I decide to mow it down in case it's something good!
 this last week I'd been thumbing through a martha stewart magazine and decided to try making these chicken sausage quesadillas. they're essentially a toasted sandwich made with flat breads. I used these prepackaged naan breads from coles coz they were on special.
 and filled them up with roasted sweet potato pieces, mushrooms, sliced cooked chicken sausage and shredded mozzarella [although i think tasty cheese would've been nicer]
 and served them up with some tomato salsa, guacamole an salad!

these I got from sweet envy - raspberry, nectarine and plum. very nice.... they were quite huge so these lasted me 3 days [a macaron a day!]

unfortunately can't help you with taht plant..although it does look like a herb. I'm salivating over your sandwich! I'm too lazy to cook anything good these days.

Did you find out what your plant is? If it smells like Basil, it quite possibly is a variety of it. Herbs can grow in more than one size; what you find in nurseries are usually a standard type that sells well.
