Too much garlic?

Everything is better with garlic. Froot Loops are better with garlic. So, Wednesday evening, I heat up some leftover tomato chicken alfredo. "This was pretty good yesterday, but it needed a little more garlic" I said to myself. I'm too lazy to mince any garlic, or press any in those funky garlic pliers - I just reached for the jar of garlic powder. It was brand new. The old jar of garlic powder required the cap to be unscrewed, but this new one was a flip-top. Didn't notice that. Unscrewed the cap and went to shake a little on my grub. WHOOOOPH! About a 1/4 of the powder plops on my stuff. "Well, there's no such thing as too much garlic! I'll just stir it around, spread it out, homogenize it, redistribute it - it'll be fine!"

OK, there IS such a thing as too much garlic! I gagged down about half the plate before tossing the rest in the garbage. Didn't even want to subject my dogs to it. Nasty. My guts haven't been quite right ever since.

  3. I have done it with garlic powder and with cinnamon. Cinnamon is not as nice as you would think it would be, either. kak.

    I hope your guts get better, but take solace in the fact that your personal flea and tick population will likely diminish. Har!
