Rotten horrible garlic. After a long round of chores in Bedford, including a meeting at the house, I did a quick swing through Shoprite.
We’re big spinach eaters, like Popeye, and always sauté the spinach in mounds of sliced garlic. Sliced being the optimum word here rather than crushed. Maybe sliver is a more apt description of the garlic. It’s the Eyetalian in me I guess. Garlic was an integral part of my grandmother’s cooking. Same, but to a lesser degree, with my mother’s cooking. I use it all the time.
I have no basis for saying this but I swear the countries where garlic is heavily used in cooking have populations that live longer. There’s magic in garlic.
I found one head of garlic in this ugly pile that wasn’t rotten at the base and she’s home with me now, spinach too.
Shoprite is geared up for Halloween 🎃 already and I’ve been told both Lowe’s and HD are also in the Halloween spirit. I’m guessing Back To School isn’t a big seller anymore!
Spied this gorgeous Mercedes in the parking lot. Such sleek lines. Navy blue. Said AMG E63 S on the back. I’ve never owned a Mercedes for myself. I inherited my mothers 1977 450SL convertible that we used as a Sunday Go To Meetin’ car then sold. I had an Audi station wagon that I liked but traded it in for the first BMW X5 years upon years ago. This beauty would make me think about owning a Mercedes.
Got caught in a massive downpour on 684, so heavy everyone put their hazards on and a couple people pulled off the road. Zero visibility. Short lived as within a quarter mile the sky was blue.
Saw caravans of out of state power company trucks heading north. To Connecticut and beyond maybe? I haven’t heard who still is without power.
Came back to apartment noticing this. Leaks common in a garage?? 😬😬😬😬
I’m happy to report I missed hearing Cuomo’s departure speech but I read rumor he left behind his German shepherd for “others” to care for. It got me to wondering if Andrew has ever been on his own before or ever had to care for a dog without a staff to walk and feed him. I’m thinking not. Ciao Andrew. Fingers crossed Hochul isn’t half as vindictive.
