Today we are looking forward to going to the Hudson Valley Garlic Festival in Saugerties, New York. It is always the last Saturday and Sunday in September and we plan to go every year. This year I am going despite my sore knees and the sinus infection or what ever it is I have right now. I'll load up on ibuprofen, zyrtec or something and sit when I have to, but I'm goin'. I had to go put on a long sleeve shirt to stop shivering just a few minutes ago, but I'm going........ I'M GOING!!!!!!!!
We haven't miss going, with perhaps the exception of the time frame that Vicki had her spinal decompression therapy.
You would not believe all the things available at the festival.....
Giving tips about Garlic
Below is a list...
Chow Down! You won't believe the many different ways garlic can be used to enhance food. The full list is too long to include here. Here's a tasty sampling of the foods that will be available at this year's festival:
beef on a stick
black bean toastie
chocolates (yes, with garlic . . . and some without)
corn on the cob
garlic fritters (kachori)
garlic ice cream (strangely enough, a crowd favorite!)
roasted pork on a spit
garlic steak sandwiches
garlic turkey with mayo
pickles (regular or deep-fried)
Thai coconut curry
truffles, with roasted garlic
and venison sausage
What's better than garlic food for breakfast, lunch and dinner? Come and get it!
