Joan, I have NO skill at writing things down to make them interesting, and I was too busy living whatever it was I was doing to keep a diary.  I was mostly just hanging on by the skin of my teeth.

Felaine, you have known so many interesting people in your career. Your memory part of your brain must have many stored up stories to pull out on a cold winter night. Have your written them down in a book form. It would make fascinating reading for those of us with more mundane lives.

Bertold, the ONLY way to get from San Luis Obispo to the Bay Area is to fly....nobody can drive fast enough on the I-5 to get past Gilroy without upchucking.

A (late) friend who was the original Art Director at MAD Magazine once wrote to me that they DID make garlic ice cream at the office. Or tried to.  It wasn't very successful.  Or popular.

I would have been out the door and heading for Penn Station.

I am still eating garlic I grew this year. I harvested a big box full. i agree with GC, it's a major food group.

Garlic ice cream? Probably not. I could maybe see black pepper ice cream. I've had sweet tea containing black pepper - not bad.

GC - There's a little town just south of San Jose called Gilroy that's known for its garlic festival. One the big features is the garlic ice cream. (Haven't been brave enough to try it.) I've had wonderful black pepper ice cream though.

Crock pot ham and beans came out great. Speaking of spicing things up, I added a little salt, fresh cracked pepper, thyme, a little Mexican oregano, bay leaves, a couple of healthy dashes of white pepper, and garlic and onion powder.

Pat, I'm happy you mentioned using a crock pot. I had garbonzo beans soaking and will now toss them into a pot of cabbage and sausage for tonight's supper. Yes, and garlic, onion, and spices. I've been eating a lot of Brassicas lately which I think has caused some digestive problems. 'Tis the season! I'll recover.

Garlic is a food group!

Roasted and mellowed, it's a vegetable on its own. As a seasoning, it goes with many things. (Maybe not chocolate.)

I'm more on the spice it up side.  Lots of garlic, peppers, onions.  For casseroles, those and usually some thyme.  For potatoes, rosemary or oregano.  Lots of salsa. I used to eat a lot of hot pepper but since my surgery it always gives me hiccups.   I guess I'm just a spicy kind of guy!
