1. What’s something you enjoy that contains garlic?
Stir fry chicken, fish or beef mixed with veggies and a good dose of garlic and onions. Garlic is good but I like onions better.
2. What’s something you enjoy that contains ginger?
Um…. shoyu chicken and beef teriyaki spiced up soy sauce and ginger… foods that I no longer eat since they are high in salt, sugar and fat.
3. What’s something you enjoy that contains cloves?
I have a bottle of that stuff that I use to sprinkle on things I make like stir fry or salads.
4. What’s something you enjoy that contains cinnamon?
Cinnamon toast and Cinnamon cracker-toast with butter. French toast with cinnamon is good too. Shown above is "cracker-toast". You can view my simple recipe at this link: Uncle Mel's Cracker Toast Page
5. What’s something you enjoy that contains celery?
Celery sticks and Mom’s potato macaroni salad. We used to chop up celery, onions, carrots, and black olives into the thing, mix it with hard boiled eggs (after shell removal of course), boiled potatos, macaroni and Best Foods brand mayonaise seasoned with salt and pepper. We had this every Thanksgiving and some Christmas holidays as an important side dish. Miss it. Fortunately the recipe still lives and my brother can make it almost exactly as Mom.
