NATIONAL GARLIC DAY – I cannot think of a single person who dislikes garlic. There must be someone but I cannot remember having met them.

Garlic must be one of the most popular flavourings and is the subject of much lore.  Vampire repeller, Roman soldier courage multiplier, and modern date killer are just a few of garlic’s claims to fame.

I love quotes and read a fantastic garlic related quote.  Will Rogers, the famous TV cowboy and stage actor said the garlic capital of the world, Gilroy California, is the “only place in America where you can marinate a steak just by hanging it out on a clothes line.”

What is your favourite garlic recipe? Garlic bread?  Garlic fries?  Garlic mashed potatoes?  I love escargot with garlic butter.  Yum!

If we all eat garlic today, will any of us stink?
