Took advantage of the new oven to make a batch of 40 Cloves and 1 Chicken. An easy thing to make if you've got something like a dutch oven, and peeling 40 cloves of garlic is only slightly tedious, and DANG what a success. That much garlic cooked for that long creates a taste that's sweet and luscious and just has to be experienced to be believed.
It's definitely on the list to make many more times. I really need to start keeping a list of "success" recipes. Especially since Kate has informed me that I'm going to be doing more of the cooking when we get back together. I guess I really did get out of the habit while living with her, since she is a much better cook than I and has a good knack for throwing together meals out of seemingly nothing. But I suppose she is right. I can cook, and often quite well, if I put my mind to it. But meal planning is such an... annoyance.
