Last night, I was all set to write a happy post today about Angel’s report card and how great it was. That was yesterday though.
This morning, I had a hard time getting up because I didn’t sleep well. I got downstairs well after Angel did. I BBQed dinner last night and used some “Garlic Plus” on the steaks. I left the garlic on the stove. I had also left a flat of strawberries out. My parents had gone to a local farm yesterday and picked them up for me. Six whole pints of fresh, juicy, Ontario strawberries that I was looking forward to using. Can you see where this is going?
I walked into the kitchen to get Angel’s sandwich made for her lunch and I could smell garlic. I did a double take, and saw the strawberries had a funny colour to them. Yup. Angel sprinkled garlic plus on every single pint of berries. I hoped it was just the ones on the top, but the garlic ended up going right to the bottom of the box.
I mean, what almost 8 year old kid does that? And why? Why put garlic on the strawberries? I would really like to see the inside of her mind some days.
You’ll be proud of me. I did not cry. I wanted to, but I didn’t. Instead, I spent a lot of time rinsing berries this morning. I thought I got rid of all the extra flavour and put some cut up berries on my cereal. Yeah, I’m still tasting garlic. Ick.
I had some fun sending my best friend some texts this morning. She sent some replies that gave me a giggle and made my day a little brighter. She gave me some suggestions to help for finding a recipe using strawberries and garlic. This afternoon, I gave my mom a call and we seriously busted a gut laughing over this whole situation.
I honestly don’t know why she put garlic on the strawberries. Funny thing is Angel likes strawberries. I guess she also likes garlic salt, so she decided to put the two together. I didn’t want to laugh this morning, but finally I am finding the funny in it. Sadly this wasn’t the only thing to go wrong today, but that’s another story!
Here’s hoping that I can get rid of this horrible taste in my mouth soon. If you have any garlic strawberry recipes, please share while you enjoy your giggle at my expense.
