I have a "head" of garlic in my hand, trusty big knife in hand to "make you mine",, well, garlic had a "head" of his own, must have been a male,,anyway. I try to "smash" this head of garlic on my ever trusty cutting board, as I have seen many a chef do
on tv, granted I do have some arthritis, and what happens,,,,garlic decides to try to escape his fate!! Why does that never happen on tv? He goes in all directions, some hitting the pot next to him, some the dishes, farther away, some going for the floor
in the corners! What am I to do? I look around to what might be salvageable, ok, there are a few that might be able to do their job. I grab them!, by golly I am getting some fresh garlic out of this! I raise my knife and, yes, I chop the heck out of these
little suckers so they won't torment me any more. Yes, they met the fate of all garlic, as, yes they should, in so many wonderful dishes to give us all such pleasure. Garlic, beware we all love you and want you for our own. What is your best recipe with this
little darling? I would love to give it a wonderful "eulogy". Tell us of your best "interludes" with this wonderful sage.
