"I ATE THE ...

Nasturtium flower!"  -  Benji the Happy.
Remember these?

Well now they are these.

10 - 15 garlic bulbs in a braid.  We've got one to give away.  Let us know if you want in the drawing for this weekend.  We ship anywhere!

Enter me too! I thought for a moment that Benji was eating a butterfly. Glad it was no so.

what an amazing garlic harvest! Benji looks adorable with the nasturtium!

brandi b said...

It does look like Benji is eating a butterfly. He is so precious and I bet he enjoyed his "butterfly"!
Picture perfect pretty garlic, RG and BL!

I think RG is going to let Brandi B have the garlic just be cause she thinks cats are weird too. It's okay, but just remember friends, when you are trying to figure something out "cherchee the cat". Yeah, that's what we always say down here. Anyway, that really is beautiful garlic and the braiding is just remarkable.

I honestly would not know what to do with real garlic. I am more of a garlic powder kind of cook. You can get a decent sized shaker of it for a dollar at Aldi. I did see a cool tutorial for making homemade garlic and onion powder on a blog. These people have a nice little shop right in "weird" ole Austin, Mexico...I mean, TEXAS. Let's compromise-TEJAS. You would like them, Anonymous. THey have two cats named Parsnip and Carrots.

This picture should be titled

And it's adorable.

What must I do to win BENJI????

anonymous said...

6Bs, Brandi B, is always good for an idea or two. The password is "vans". RG himself once brought up the subject of renting Benji out. This produced a measure of moral outrage, but once again, on the sly, one could try. I am sure genuinely winning Benji is however OUT OF THE QUESTION. As a practical matter he is beyond price, and one is required to pay taxes on one's winnings, and, oh, he's mine!

BB, Parsnips and Carrots? Those folks clearly need a bunny or two. You know if we could entice you to Austin, we would not have to print up all those "Keep Austin Weird" t-shirts. I think you could give us some really solid advice on keeping from becoming un-weird. As for Texas/Mexico/Tejas, let's just call it Ours, yours, mine, everyone's. Oh, and even if you don't cook with fresh garlic, I will light candles for you, sad, sad, you can carry the braided string around with you and swing it at at anyone you meet who has a definite whap wish. I usually consider food sacred, but don't wish you to miss out on the fun of the drawing.

They ARE very pretty garlic braids. I am afraid that the only thing I would do with one is hang it by my kitchen window. My decor is Muy Mexico Chic. Very Viva Cocina de la Conejos Preciosos. I have been toying with the idea of papier mache' braids of garlic and chilis for this reason. Best to leave the garlic to people who will actually benefit from the actual use of it, instead of leaving it up to ward off vampire advances at my kitchen window.
HOWEVER, I would HAPPILY pay for shipping on some of those bunny edible flowers that are growing nicely in Washington. My bunnies have had nothing fresh from the outside since about June before the heat fried all the edibles in the yard and at the park across the street. Store bought greens are great, but like eating locally harvested honey, I believe there are health benefits to eating locally pollinated grasses, flowers and greens.

I mean "de LOS conejos preciosos"

anonymous said...

Sorry, bb you've been reported. I expect you are being questioned by the conejos right now. Which ones did you forget about? Which ones aren't precious? Which ones are little girls?

Christina said...

We wants that garlic.......and send Benji too please!

brandi b said...

Anonymous, if mi conejos preciosos could hold a pistola automatica, I would have had my kneecaps shot out hace mucho tiempo. The old Smith and Wesson Fiesta del Conejos Locos and Carrotini Mixer.

I love garlic. I want in too, thanks!
