In Praise of Garlic

Found this quote earlier today and thought it pretty well sums up the truth:

Tomatoes and oregano make it Italian; wine and tarragon make it French.
Sour cream makes it Russian; lemon and cinnamon make it Greek. Soy
sauce
makes it Chinese; garlic makes it good. -Alice May Brock, author

other than with Rice Krispies, it's hard to think of much that isn't better with garlic.

What!! Not on Rice Krispies? Are you daft, woman? Everyone knows all you have to do is saute the darlin' little rice puffs in evoo with some garlic, then put them on your salad. Hah! Take that!

Muddie,
Just make your milkshake with this!
It's gotta be good, it's from Gilroy.
  • 1 1/2 tsp Gelatin
  • 1/4 cup cold water
  • 2 cups milk
  • 3/4-1 cup sugar
  • 2 tblsp lemon juice
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 cups whipping cream
  • Strawberry topping (or other fruit)
Directions:
Soak the gelatin in cold water while you heat to a boil the milk, sugar and salt. Dissolve the gelatin in the hot milk. Cool, then add the lemon juice and garlic. Chill the mixture until slushy. Whip the cream until thick but not stiff and stir into the mixture. Freeze in a mold, or in a foil-covered tray.
Garnish servings with the fresh fruit topping. Serves 6-8.

The good people of Gilroy should know, Buck. What would I be using re: gelatin? The stuff that comes in packets like jello, only plainer?

Okay, ya know, mudbug, I'd have to ask if this was a legit recipe. 'Cause, ya know...the source. Uh, Buck, that is.

There are times when I'm not sure whether he's being serious or not. Can you see why he shouldn't be trusted in the kitchen?

Well, I was going to comment on the un-milkshake like consistency of this recipe, but then I remembered how easily his feelings are hurt.

Muddie,
Katie just informed me that you expected ME to make you a milk shake. No problemo. Just PM me your mailing address. I'll pour the milkshake into an envelope and send it on its way.

Your faithful servant,
Buck
