Unusual uses for garlic.

That was interesting. I had no idea that garlic had so many uses.

They did forget to say that it wards off vampires.

You probably won't see any vampires here:

I've always wondered what garlic ice cream would taste like. I love both garlic and ice cream, but I'm not sure about the combination.

I bought a pizza for supper just so I'd have something to sprinkle some extra garlic powder on (don't know whether it would be as good on ice cream).

I had pizza last night from a new restaurant, and it was nice and garlicky. That was the first thing I smelled when I opened the box.

I'm looking for someplace closer to celebrate National Cheddar Fries Day but maybe one of these are near you.

I made sure to include lima beans in the soup that I am making today. My grandma's recipe for baked beans taught me to like lima beans at an early age.

I went out to lunch with a neighbor, and I did have fries, but not cheddar fries, which I've never had. There is a Steak and Shake here, but I've never been to it and I don't remember seeing cheddar fries on any other menu where I've been. They do sound tasty.

I see that today is Kindergarten Day. I'm not sure how to celebrate that.

Egg salad week is easy enough to celebrate.

Only if you like egg salad, which I don't.

I have celebrated so far by picking up litter during my walk, then coming home and planting some herbs.
