Roasted Garlic

See I have this awesome women in my life Bev and she has always big such a big supporter of me. Shes unbelievably influential in every aspect of my life and has always been my cheerleader. When I told her I wanted to start a food blog she said “THEN DO IT!”, just like that! There is nothing that stands in her path! She also has a blog EscapingOurComfortZone where she writes about her life and all of adventures her and her husband get into. The other day she wrote about how she was going for a run and she hit that wall where her brain told her to just stop and give up, but she didn’t she told herself to keep going. Check out the post here, in it she describes how running has to do with every aspect in your life, if you just stop and give up then you have let your inner demons win but if you say “NOW” and keep going then you have won the war. She talks about how she didn’t want to label herself as a quitter. Here is a very perfect quote from the post “And sitting here staring at that picture of my NOW, just made me realize that NOW spelled backwards is WON.  If I want to win, if I want to reach my goals and live my dreams, then I must live right NOW.  Do it NOW!  All I have is NOW.  Let us begin.?”

What does this have to do with roasted garlic? Well to be truthful nothing at all, BUT I haven’t been able to get that post out of my head, as I said she’s very inspirational, since that post I have been telling myself NOW. What am I waiting for to post a recipe? I just need to get up and do it! I have all these ideas in my head but I just need to do it NOW! So now that I am down off of my soap box lets get down to business and what you have come here for!

    • 🙂 That makes me happy and teary eyed too! I only speak the truth though and you really are amazing!! I’m touched to have made your day and year 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 :).

  2. This looks great! I love roasted garlic but have never thought to add it to mayo. Your photography is fantastic. I am only two weeks into blogging so I have a lot to learn. It’s helpful to me to see blogs that are done particularly well. I am definitely going to follow you and will check out your friend’s blog as well! Thanks for sharing!

    • Thank you so very much! Tell me about it I could eat the roasted garlic straight from the oven sometimes with just the smell alone. I am almost 3 years into blogging and I still have a lot to learn, it’s a constant, so I wish you the best of luck :). Thanks I am self taught with the photography, honestly I just looked at other peoples blog to see how they posed their items and viola!
