Thursday Evening featuring giant garlic clove


#1

Fucking look at the size of it! LOOK!


#2

think you mean ‘onion’


#3

Don’t ruin this for me japes. This is the best thing that’s happened to me in 2017.


#4

It’s no


#5

what is it going to go in?

I’m considering making some more risotto since my last one (two days ago) was pretty good and I have loads of the rice left


#6

We have such crap garlic here. In France I bought some that were absolute giants and that justifies the fact I use 3 cloves for every 1 in a recipe, because maybe chefs are using this good giant garlic.

Watching Gruffalo again and sorting out getting to a meeting tomorrow as my nanny just cancelled and people have come from America for it so I can’t be the one to flake when I live closest to where we’re meeting.

So much work to do tonight. Help.


#7

Got a free meal, side and drink at leon
Proposed a great income generating idea at work which I might get a bonus for if it works

BUT evil landlord visit tonight and possible eviction


#8

Going out to a fancy pants drug dinner tonight but I don’t really have anything to wear that’s in between normal work clothes and wedding outfit. Don’t really have a smart coat either :angry:.

Also, I’ve noticed that the ‘replying list’ at the bottom of the thread doesn’t match the one in the reply box :thinking:


#9

:raised_hands:
Love me some Leon


#10

I just went to inspect the rest of the garlic! It’s the same on the other side with a weird flat clove in the middle! The whole thing is 3 parts! JEEZO.

I was going to shove it in with some baked potatoes to roast off… seems a bit wasteful now. Might need to make something special with it.

@japes this was meant to be a response to you.


#11

Ideas for dinner please


#12

It might not taste better though. Like how the best basil leaves are the smallest.

I like the round dent in the one on the left, I really want to smooth my thumb into it like a nice shiny conker.


#13

We once did some Ottolenghi burger thing which involved slow roasting garlic cloves for about 6 weeks (ottolenghi is never easy!) - bet if would be great for that


#14

Honey and I are watching hostel. She thinks it’s silly.


#15

It’s the smoked garlic from Morrisons, so even if it might not taste as nice being so mammoth it still smells awesome :smiley:


#16

Solid garlicking there Witches


#17

Alright Donald Trump.

(this joke is that they are normal sized garlic cloves and you hand tiny hands)


#18

10:13 here. Have been away from home since last Tuesday and I am really missing the TV at this point.
Got about 5 hours of meetings today so I guess that’s a distraction of sorts!


#19

Haha. My hands are probably bigger than yours.


#20

just had some quorn burgers, pretty great!
