Just One of Those Garlic Bread Days

Lazing around the boardwalk of Litchfield's 'Little Pond'

Today I'm rather exhausted . . . a whole lot of running around.

So I'm putting up my lunch -I ate it at 6:00.

Garlic Bread
(Using the ingredients that I could find)

  • Several slices of frozen rye bread.
  • Gently spread a teaspoon or so of olive oil over one side.
  • Sprinkle garlic powder.
  • . . . oregano
  • . . . Sea Salt
  • . . . Parmesan cheese
  • . . . paprika
  • Toast in oven until the surface becomes golden.
  • Enjoy!

Things to think about while you're eating (since we should always be learning):
  • From the earliest times garlic has been used as a food. It formed part of the food of the Israelites in Egypt (Numbers 11:5) and of the laborers employed by Khufu in constructing the pyramid.
  • Gourmands often believe sea salt to be superior to ordinary table salt in taste and texture, though one cannot always taste the difference when dissolved . . . Because sea salt generally lacks high concentrations of iodine, an ion essential for human health, it is not necessarily a healthy substitute for regular iodized table salt.
  • [Parmesan cheese] is made from raw cow's milk. Only milk produced between May 1 and November 11 is used in producing the true Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese. The whole milk of the morning milking is mixed with the naturally skimmed milk of the previous evening's milking resulting in a part skim mixture . . . In the European Union, "Parmesan" is a protected designation of origin; legally, it refers exclusively to the Parmigiano Reggiano DOP cheese manufactured in a limited area in Northern Italy.
  • According to the Oxford English Dictionary, the word [paprika] comes from the Hungarian "paprika", which derives from the Serbian "paprika", which is a diminutive of "papar", which in turn was derived from the Latin "piper", for "pepper.
  • Olive oil vendors choose the wording on their labels very carefully: 'Imported from Italy' produces an impression that the olives were grown in Italy, although in fact it only means that the oil was bottled there. A corner of the same label may note that the oil was packed in Italy with olives grown in Spain, Greece, Turkey, and Tunisia instead of Italy.
