    I'm for something quick and delicious—chicken tenders, fresh crushed garlic cloves, olive oil, kosher salt-or your favorite, course black pepper and if you'd like- hot pepper flakes. Add all to a bowl or zip type bag and mix well. Allow to sit (in a cold place!) while the grill heats up. It takes no time at all and it's very versatile-you can make stuffed pitas, tacos, burritos, top a salad with it, put it on/in pasta-one of my favorites- toss into a nice Alfredo Sauce-I make a great low fat version with cashew nut cream blended in for the cream/ milk in the regular sauce… I just don't tell anyone what's in it ( of course-Be SURE that no one eating this is allergic to nuts first!) All time favorite-use it to top grilled pizza!! YUM!

    40 cloves of garlic . . . Can't wait to try it on that chicken!

    My contribution to Fall Fest this week is a gentle nudge to plant your own garlic. It's so very easy!
