Not a fan. I've never liked garlic.

I have started using it because it's so healthy, but I use it sparingly.

Hahaha - the best stickin' party in town. ;) I love the smell of garlic and would be sure to attend this. I had garlic icecream once and it was quite tasty. Bet a lot people attend this one, Kathy.

Omg Kathy, this is so funny! I like garlic, especially roasted big cloves, but boy does it stink out your pores. At least it's healthy for you!

I've always loved garlic - and it bothered my Mom to no end, because she hated it. She went to school with a lot of children who wore garlic around their necks to ward off colds - and learned to hate the smell. In her mind it combined with wet wool and unwashed bodies. 

Meanwhile... I do put garlic on most of what I cook - but not cakes, pies, or ice cream! I can't quite imagine that.

Hi Kathy, Delray Beach FL knows how to keep vampires away for sure! I use garlic in pretty much in everything I cook, absolutely LOVE it. I don't think I would like any in my ice cream though.

I love garlic so this could be lots of fun. I might even try the ice cream. After all you can now get bacon ice cream!

Will you be reporting back on your visit?

I love the taste, hate the smell.  I must be part vampire or something because the smell recoils me completely.

 Kathy Streib  = enjoy this 'stinkin' party this weekend!

Music, Garlic place and Garlic Ice Cream (I had one when I was in CA once - I believe it will take time for me to develop the taste for that...)
