OWW: Garlic?

Lucy found an old wives' tale for me today that I hadn't seen... but it involved eating a whole clove of garlic. We'll see if I can get up the courage to do that for next week's (final!) Old Wives Wednesday.

I'm not sure Shawn would want to be in the same room with me if I ate a whole clove of garlic.

I'm not sure I'd want to be in the same room as me if I ate a whole clove of garlic!

If anyone has a garlic recipe that makes eating a whole clove a little more delicious, let me know.

A few from "His Boys Can Swim" instead...

The "V" Eye Test: "Pull down the skin under your left eye. If you see a 'V' or 'branches' in the white part, you’re having a girl" . I have branches! One point to the girls.

The Side You Most Sleep On: If a pregnant woman prefers to lay on her left side, she’s having a boy. If she prefers resting on her right side, she’s having a girl. Left side sleeper-- One point to the boys.

The Chinese gender chart says boy if I use an American calendar and girl if I use a Chinese calendar.

I guess we'll have to go with garlic after all.

Or just wait two weeks.

Maybe Shawn can eat the garlic?


  1. I'm confused... One clove or one whole head of garlic? If just one clove, try roasting it and spreading it on bread like butter. Ahhhh, garlic bliss!

  2. @cck - Garlic Bread will probably be the solution, but any food right now is on the gross list for me. I sauteed onions three days ago for a pizza and still smell them in my house, my hair, my clothes
