Jekyll and Hyde





Dr Jekyll, Mr Hyde
How come so bad and good inside?
Enticed away by fullest flavor
Culinary cuisine, I'd love to savor
But friends say you're no good for me
That we should not keep company
I've tried disguise with herbs so fine
Why must our love be clandestine?
And so in secret I'll conspire
To bite you hard...I'm no vampire!

Great ending. Enjoyed this.

Truth is, I do my garlic overdose when my husband is away in LA. He hates garlic, especially second hand garlic!

Loved the concept...the Jekyl and Hyde of cuisine. Good job. Vb

Knew a woman that chewed a clove of garlic ALL THE TIME, in fact when she talked, sometimes a little bit would fly out of her mouth.

I loved this - it makes me laugh. Favorite line: "I've tried disguise with herbs so fine/Why must our love be clandestine?" And it's so true. I've just discovered how absolutely delicious garlic is in the last couple of months... but sometimes I have to avoid it! :)

What a fun take on the photo. Super. (Chew fresh parsley after eating anything with garlic! Also tell hubby it's good for the heart!)
