On Sunday nights we have a tradition or ritual if you want to call it that. I, basically, cook all afternoon. I don’t know how this tradition started, but we all enjoy it. I enjoy it because I really like to cook and my family enjoys it because they really like to eat what I cook, well sometimes anyway. Tonight I made our favorite meal. I wanted to share it with you. Be warned, though. This meal is not for the faint of heart, the person who is afraid of strong aromas, or the person who is planning on doing a lot of one-on-one time smooching later that evening. There can be no fear of garlic—I used four bulbs.
For the entree, Chicken with Forty Cloves of Garlic. I didn’t actually count the garlic but used 3 bulbs of garlic for the chicken and I roasted one head of garlic for a side of Garlic Roasted Smashed Red Potatoes.
