Happy New Year! I am finally back from a short break from cooking and recipe writing. There’s nothing new to report but I am hooked on Yuri!!! on Ice! It’s a sports + romance anime about figure skating that’s captured the hearts of people around the world including mine. World renowned figure skaters are also watching the anime and commenting on social media about it. The show has piqued my interest for ice skating so much so that my best friend and I drove up to Delaware to watch the US National Skate Team Send Off last week. The US team has a lot of talented skaters! We also got to meet figure skating champion Johnny Weir and a bunch of other amazing fangirls.
Meanwhile in our kitchen…Roasted Garlic.
I naively thought that roasting garlic was a waste of time when I can just smash cloves with a mortar and pestle and throw them in hot oil. Hahaha! Ignorante! I laugh at how clueless I was. Seriously, there is so much I don’t know about cooking. Roast Garlic is delish! It has and unforgettable mild, nutty, buttery flavor.
My beloved spouse walks in after work, I am excited and enthusiastic to share my new discovery.
Me: “Have you ever had roasted garlic?”
He nods and says: “U-huh, you know the best thing in the world is pumpernickel toast with roasted garlic spread on it. It’s even better as a vehicle for steak tartare.”
Me: Blank face.
The man has been holding out on me! Or am I the only one who has not had roasted garlic until now?
