G is for Garlic- The Stinking Rose


G is for Garlic

Another Night of
Sleeping on the Couch
This stinking rose
Offends her nose
When I've had a bite
So late at night
I sneak in bed
Away from her head
BUT! "Oh no! Oh ick !"
"I smell garlic!"
So off I go-
she's such a grouch
Once again I am sleeping
on the couch.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
This would never happen with us as we are addicted to
the "Stinking Rose" and most every main dish begins
with "2-6 garlic cloves-depending on how mean you are."
Here's one of our favorite garlic laced recipes.
Bon Appetit!

The Famous and Awesomely
 Tasty Garlic Spagetti
2 ample servings
6-8 cloves pressed raw garlic (more if you feel really mean)
1 raw egg
4 tablespoons melted butter
1 tablespoon dry basil or 3 T fresh chopped basil
1/3 cup fresh chopped parsley
1/3 cup freshly grated parmesan/romano/asaigo cheese-what ever you prefer
9oz fresh pasta or same equivalent in dry pasta

Mix garlic,raw egg,butter,basil,parsley,and cheese throughly into a "gunk"
meanwhile boil water for pasta, cook pasta, drain pasta and stir gunk into hot pasta
throughly and serve immediately with crusty bread and a big green salad. YUM

There's an Italian restaurant in Pacifica, CA called Nicks. When you walk in you smell garlic. Oh it's pure heaven. I don't care what I smell like, give me the garlic.

Have a terrific day. ☺

I love garlic, have some friends who grow the stuff and send a jar of their powdered product from time to time.

Oh, garlic, how much we use here! Even my Little Girl, who claims to be a vampire, loves it.

It's true that garlic stinks, but I'd much rather cook with it than roses.
