My boss has cancelled our weekly meetings for a month now but I've asked for one tomorrow. I really hate my job. Hate it hate it hate it. Anyway, I've just eaten 2 bulbs of garlic (the whole head, not just 2 individual cloves) and I don't really care what happens TBH.

How did you do it? Like an apple, or like an orange?

With any luck you'll have silent, hot, garlicky guffs.

The meeting may be over quite quickly then grin

Depends on your reason for eating them.
If for a medical reason, YANBU.
If it's to spark a reaction from boss, then you probably are BU.

And haven't I read on MN somewhere about an unfortunate reaction to too much garlic?
Or was that because they shoved it up their bun?

how on earth did you eat it all?

Why would you want to eat that much garlic?

Teamumizumi Mon 08-Oct-12 17:40:40

TBH the garlic has been slow roasted for an hour and is all mushy and I love the stuff. I just got carried away and ignored that voice in my head which said " You should n't be eating this!"

Mmm. Roasted caramalised garlic is yummy! Not sure I could eat two bulbs though. Did you roast some peppers too?

Teamumizumi Mon 08-Oct-12 17:48:01

No, i roasted them with fresh beetroot, olive oil and fresh thyme. 180 deg, 40 mins smile

That sounds delish!

With some pitta bread and fresh lemon slices?

YANBU.Everyone should eat more garlic.Then we'd all stink and wouldn't be able to smell each other.

Now you're just making me hungry

RubyFakeNails Mon 08-Oct-12 17:53:58

Won't you gas them all with your farts?!

I only indulge in my garlic love when I know I shall be alone the next day.

KenLeeeeeee Mon 08-Oct-12 17:54:24

I love garlic and could eat it by the truckload, so YANBU, though YA-probably-a-bit-stinky grin

Wow you really love garlic.

Roast will be fine as the flavour is very mellow. At first I thought you meant you were going to eat two bulbs of raw garlic. That would have been, ummm, fragrant.

AngelWreakinHavoc Mon 08-Oct-12 17:54:59

Love garlic but never had it roasted. How is this done?

BenandBolly Mon 08-Oct-12 17:56:07

I don't think you smell if you eat it roasted.

I used to have a lecturer who would eat raw garlic sandwiches for breakfast, nobody would sit in the front row when he had the first few lectures.

Coprolite Mon 08-Oct-12 17:58:43

Don't you have to chew on some parsley or something to neutralise the smell?

Chopstheduck Mon 08-Oct-12 17:59:08

Ah roasted! Very nice, though I couldn't eat two bulbs.

Have you ever tried Delia's recipe for guinea fowl with thirty cloves of garlic? Sounds like you would enjoy that, and it is heavenly!

SwedishEdith Mon 08-Oct-12 18:00:11

God, I wouldn't give it a second thought. I cannot smell garlic on anyone now so assume I just permanently stink of it. Sounds gorgeous what you've eaten. Have you made the guinea fowl recipe with something like 30 bulbs of garlic? Oh, I need to do it again soon now.

squoosh Mon 08-Oct-12 18:01:44

You know what you should have had with the roast garlic? Baked camambert. Splodge the melty cheese on some crusty bread and squidge he roasted garlic on top.

Stick a clove up your bum, that'll take away the smell.
