Stinky Garlic Fingers

Freshly minced garlic is not only better, but also necessary for delicious meals. Whatever your garlicky dish is, it deserves the extra little bit of effort associated with mincing your own. The only problem, you must tolerate the pungent assault every time your finger is near your nose. You get that stinky, funky garlicky smell, and it seems that it will never go away!
There is a solution to this problem, and it is ridiculously simple. You don’t need anti-garlic soap, an evil, batman villain inspired caustic concoction, or even some exotic product from a fancy, foo foo, 10 dollar more store. All you need is a stainless-steel spoon.
Simply use any old stainless-steel spoon and wash your hands under warm water like it is a bar of soap. After several seconds, all the garlic will be gone. It is amazing! It is so effective that you can even buy a stainless-steel bar of soap. By the way, please don’t use a fork or a knife, the result might be disastrous!

Wine of the Day
Jean-Jacques Vincent Pouilly-Fuisse
Marie Antoinette - 2014
This bottle of Chardonnay does cost a little more--but it drinks like a $75 Chassagne Montrachet. IT IS LUXURIOUS!! Balanced with a mixture of many different fruits, ranging from apple to lemon and melon, it is definitely old world with minerality but balanced with a suggestion of oak. Once in a while, go out and get a bottle that costs a little more. This White Burgundy is worth the extra little bit of money. To improve on this one you will need $70 to $100. Stop, breath, pause, fill your nose with its essence, take a sip, close your eyes and just savor.
