I am a ham. I fully admit it. I love a captive audience and my favorite thing to do is to make people laugh. When my sister Colleen got married, I worked for days on my speech. My other sister Maureen did hers on the fly.
Guess who's flopped.
That's right. Mine.
Like crickets chirping, nose blowing silence.
I tapped the mic, "Is this thing on?"
One child over under 10 laughed, but I am pretty sure that was because someone next him passed gas loudly.
Maureen? She took the house down. She had a zinger that everyone remembered.
People were coming up to her the rest of the night, "Oh, Maureen! You are so funny. Erin, isn't your sister SO funny!?"
Thank God for my captive audience at Jazzercise. I can make them laugh pretty easily. THEY think I am funny.
I am grateful for Facebook. I can say something funny and get instant gratification through "likes" and comments.
And of course there is this blog. A wonderful outlet to feed my ego. I write, and pray that people read. And some people actually do! Thank YOU for helping me feel worthy!
For that, I will give you a simple and DELISH recipe to make. Great for a crowd, or you can eat it all up yourself.
That's what I would do.
Grill Roasted Garlic
2 heads garlic
2 Tb olive oil
Slice the top of the head of each garlic bulb.
Place both bulbs on a large sheet of aluminum foil. .
Pour olive oil over the garlic bulbs and wrap the foil around them.
Place in a preheated grill away from flame. If you have a shelf on your grill, put it on there.
Close the grill and cook for 40 mins to an hour.
The garlic will become soft and mushy. Perfect to spread on some crusty bread you warmed up on the grill. Just carefully (IT IS HOT) squeeze the bulb and the garlic will pour out.
