Garlic Day

by Matt on April 19, 2007


I’ve been juggling a few projects these past few days and before I knew it today was half over. Normally that’s a good thing, but this time around I forgot to wish everyone a very happy National Garlic Day. I mean, really, who knew?

Tonight I think I’ll recreate these photos I took last week, bake a few heads of garlic and enjoy their roasted nuttiness with a drizzle of olive oil and a baguette. Pure heaven – and I won’t have to worry about vampires!

Have a good one, everyone!

Oh boy, happy garlic day to everybody, because if any kissing is going to happen, everyone better have some. Thanks again Matt for bringing a smile to my face. Grin.

PS – The pictures of your garlic looked *SO* stinkin’ awesome that we ended up roasting a bulb to go with dinner last night. Thanks for the inspiration!

I am such a dweeb. Hope it was as delicious as it looks.

My favorite garlic recipe- 40-clove garlic chicken. I could just eat the bread spread with the roasted garlic dipped in the chicken-white wine juices and forget the chicken altogether!

Love hearing that after 30 years you are still a big fan of the Old Strand Emporium’s Famous Po Boy. The Chow Chow is made special for the Emporium by a company in Ft. Worth. Drop in soon for the real thing.
