Quote du jour: Are you casting asparagus on my cooking?

It's not my fault.
Not completely, anyway.

I mean, the recipe said that you're supposed to roast the head of garlic without peeling the cloves. In my joy at that news, I kinda skipped over the part about removing the dried papery skin around the garlic. And everything was going fine...until I heard the high-pitched screaming coming from the oven. I had to pierce the skin with a knife several times before the noise went away. Okay, yes, I stabbed it until it stopped screaming. I felt guilty for assaulting a vegetable.

Who knew cooking could be this violent?

Damn back still hurts, but it's a low level of pain that doesn't seem affected by ellipticaling. (Sitting is another story.)

Exercise du jour: 30 minutes elliptical, respectfully.

Garlic-cide. How did it come to this!

I hate it when my food screams. It took me a long time before I didn't feel guilty for cooking eggs in the pan because of the "chirping" noises they make.

What? Your eggs don't chirp?

You don't remember the kid jokes about how chef's are violet because they beat eggs and whip cream? Guess we can now add stab garlic.

Sorry the back is not as cooperative as it should be.
