It is really too early to open the pickled garlic jar but I couldn’t stand it. This morning I picked one out and ate it. I like the taste but contrary to what I’ve been reading, I ate that garlic clove over and over until noon today. It may have been my own fault though. I have one of those stomachs that generally can handle anything at anytime. It is bona fide cast iron. This morning though I hadn’t had a thing to eat. I do suppose you wouldn’t normally eat garlic at 7:00 in the morning on an empty stomach and expect it to go well with coffee!! Oh well, the urge hit me and I went with it . . . and paid for that one!!! Trust me, have no fear, the pickled garlic does not lose any potency fixed this way!!
By the way, on my Herb and Spice Talk Page I have put all my herbs in alphabetical order and I try to add herbs every now and then so if you have a particular herb you are interested in knowing a little more about and it's not there, by all means let me know and if I don't have it on there I'll "snap to"!! Today I added Borage, one of my more favorite herbs. If you ever need more information or more input let me know. I'll be more than happy to give you any information that I already know or that I might be able to scrounge up for you. You're talking to the crazy lady here when it comes to herbs!!!!! I love 'em!
Tonight for dinner I’m fixing Lemon-Dilled Tilapia, baked potato and some leftover canned whole tomatoes. I just can't seem to think of anything else. I have already decided about tomorrow’s dinner though. I’m going to stuff green peppers with ground beef and rice. Any of you got any suggestions on what to fix with stuffed peppers? I’m so tired of the same ole, same ole. I thought maybe just a green salad but I’m tired of that too. This is not good!!
You know what? This could possibly mean that I’m needing a night out!!! Once I go out and eat I get a whole new perspective on food. I’ll see a color or a new idea on presentation or I find myself eating and saying things like, gosh, this is good or sometimes, yuk, I can do a better job myself. I don’t know, maybe I need to invite some company over for a luncheon or dinner. That usually gets me going!! Hmmm!! It has been awhile. Maybe a dinner party is in order. It could also be that after 38 years of meals sometimes you just draw a blank.
