A vicious storm passed through right at supper time last night. Knocked the power out for 3 hours. My planned spaghetti meal has been postponed 'til tonight. I made a salad instead. I eat a lot of salads this time of year--all the greens come right out of my garden. Using a variety of dressings changes the taste considerably. I make much of my own dressings, but admittedly, I enjoy store-bought. So shoot me.

Love garlic. Use it in Italian, Chinese, Mexican, etc. I agree it's a pain to peel the cloves and finely mince each one. I have a garlic press, but rarely use it, as it just doesn't seem to get it quite right.

Don't know about kim chee (chi), but I do know about garlic. Grow it, eat it, love it. But it's a pain to prepare for consumption.

Kim Chi is fantastic!

Daniel, I have a "no cook" pasta meals cookbook.  All of the sauces are uncooked and only slightly warmed over the pot of boiling pasta water.  Of course all of the added garlic is basically raw and pretty potent.

Pardon my slight relapse from the grace of atheism, but garlic is just like chocolate:  manna from heaven.

Uh oh! I LOVE garlic. One of my favorite after work meals, when after work I feel like Ive been drug by wild horses through the sagebrush desert, I make spagetti, drain and rinse, then add 2 or 3 big cloves of crushed fresh raw garlic, olive oil, and grate some romano. I grow the garlic myself. i love that. Makes me feel all warm inside.

I hope it mostly wears off by the next day. Someone filed a complaint againt my coworker for eating onions, and they were subjected to a Work Improvement Plan.

Sorry, I can't stand the stench of kim-chee eaters....garlic coming out their pores 24/7.  Gag me with a chopstick.

Josn, to me its the same. Ning is from NE China, which abuts Korea. So there is some cultural interchange. His family always made sauerkraut but is was not as highly flavored ad Kim-chi.

Which reminds me, I have some home made sauerkraut in the fridge. It's been there a while. Should be pretty good.

Daniel, did you have kim chee when you were in China? Is it the same in USA, or do you and Kim make it? 

Patricia, I had some sauerkraut with my dinner tonight. I love it. I haven't tried Eden brand.
