  1. Garlic you continue to list things I love!!!

    when I first met my mother-in-law i made a roast from her and my father-in-law. I embedded cloves of garlic in the meat.

    she freaked out and said it would be too spicy.
    For the rest other life, she embedded garlic closes when she made a roast!
    (she loved it when it was done)!
