    Garlic, A Love Story

    I believe all doner kebabs and all gyros souvlakia must be made using garlic sauce, and never be made using tsatsiki sauce. END OF STORY !

    I do so love garlic.  Minced and sauteed to flavor veggies, minced and mixed with butter to make garlic toast, crushed into a sauce...Yum.  Yeah, no vampires are gonna bug me anytime soon!

    I’m worried that I’m going to start smelling like garlic. I started eating raw garlic cloves with my okra. I feel like I can still taste and smell the garlic hours after I’ve eaten them. I read that it can come out of your pores. I hope not. That would not be good

    The smell! The taste!

    It can go into almost anything, and makes it better. Or just whole cloves in their skins and cooked in some oil and finished of with some wine! YUMMYNESS!! Thank goodness my husband loves it just as much as me! Hehe!

    Momma and Reader's DIgest

    Momma said smash it and let it sit out for 5 minutes to oxidize and it increases in nutritional value. Reader'd Digest said to eat a teaspoon (one clove) fresh raw garlic every day.

    It Burns

    I enjoy garlic. I remember one time when I ate so much with dinner that it burned my throat to breath after. And I woke up with the taste still a little in my mouth. GREAT STUFF!

    Garlic Love

    I like sticking a couple of cloves of garlic in everything I eat, and just eating the cloves whole. They are so delicious, and make the meal taste fantastic too.  I don't even care about the health benefits (even though there are alot). I just think they are yummy :-)
