Something to celebrate

Today, April 19, is National Garlic Day. I don't know the origin of this holiday but garlic is worth the attention and all the media coverage it will receive today. [grin] OK, maybe Target and Wal-Mart won't have the card racks decked out, but maybe they should. Garlic has lots of health benefits and it's also very tasty. It probably does NOT keep away evil spirits and vampires, so wearing it as an accessory is not recommended.

Might not keep away evil spirits and vampires, but it will keep a lot of people far enough if you eat a bunch of it.

But yes, I fully agree with Nick: MMMMMMMM indeed.

sez hoo? heh heh... ;-)

OK, you got me on the cereal, but maybe it's not so bad as a flavoring for a tofu dog.

May the FSM touch you His garlic-y appendages!!

Just about everything I cook has garlic in it, and I firmly believe that you can never have too much garlic. Yummy!

They have an annual Garlic Festival in Gilroy, CA every year (well, Duh - I already said annual, Eh?).

Among the other standard highly-garlicky foods, there's garlic ice-cream (yup!) and garlic wine.

Also, The Stinking Rose restaurant on San Francisco is quite a garlic-lover heaven. Been there once. Lost all my friends for a week after...

There was a restaurant in St. Louis that we liked called "Saleem's -- where Garlic is King", and they actually had a "king" made out of garlic in the window. We love garlic so we took some friends there, and I think the garlic was a bit too much for them to take.

Now the wine and ice cream... well... OK, I will try them. Stinking Rose, what a great name!
