Garlic Dinner 2013

We recently hosted our 21st Annual Garlic Dinner in Sweet Remembrances.  The appetizer course included a Roasted Almond & Garlic Spread with Triangle Toasts and Crackers, Garlic Hummus with Carrots and Celery, Garlicky Pickles, and Shrimp Marinated in a Garlic Lemon Vinaigrette.







A Leafy Green Salad with Assorted Toppings and Garlic Sourdough Croutons was topped with a Rustic Garlic Dressing.















The main entrée featured Lemon Dijon and Garlic Chicken with Whole Roasted Garlic, Potatoes & Yummy Peppers, Roasted Asparagus with a Garlic Sauce, and the Ultimate Garlic Herb Bread.











And dessert included a Garlicky Carrot Cake and Chocolate Covered Garlic Cloves.



As is customary, by the end of the evening, each guest had consumed the equivalent of three entire heads of garlic!  We're not referring to individual cloves of garlic, but the complete garlic bulb!

That is a lot of garlic. Did everyone burp garlic breathe? Oh my, smiling! I would have loved it.

One question: How long is it before those guests can go out in public again? (Ha!) But much as I love garlic, I'll bet I would enjoy this immensely!
