19th Annual Garlic Dinner

Garlic! Garlic! and more Garlic!  We had our annual garlic dinner last week.  The appetizers set the scene, a plate full of garlic that included pickled garlic cloves, Rosemary Garlic Jelly over cream cheese served with garlicky crackers, Feta & Garlic Stuffed Sweet Peppers, and Swiss Apple Melt.  Oh yum!
The salad featured assorted leafy greens, cranberries, garlicky almond slivers, feta cheese, and a homemade Italian dressing.




For the entree, Cheesy Garlic Chicken with whole garlic cloves, oven roasted garlic mashed potatoes, green beans, and to-die-for garlic Parmesan bread.  And dessert was Apple Cream Pie, yes, with thin matchstick pieces of garlic baked with the apples.  Alas, no photo of dessert, it was gobbled up too quickly!
Definitely a dinner for those who love garlic!  By the end of the meal, each guest consumed three heads (not merely cloves, but heads!) of garlic.

The garlic dinner looks wonderful. I really like garlic, raw or cooked. I've never tried it in a dessert, but I bet that Apple Cream Pie with garlic was delicious.
