Elephant Garlic at Seattle's Pike Place Market

Garlic, most people either love it or hate it.

I don’t know about you,

but I’m in the ‘love’ camp for garlic.

It is pungent,

but adds so much depth to recipes.

Here earlier tonight,

at Seattle’s Pike Place Market,

at a market vendor’s stall in the main arcade,

a display of elephant garlic caught my eye,

the purple netting covering the heads popped against the green vegetables surrounding it.

My husband and I arrived

at the Market several hours prior to the semi-annual food

and drink celebration called ‘Arcade Lights.’

is ‘Random 5 Friday,’

over at my friend Nancy’s place, ‘A Rural Journal,’

where we link up a post with some facts about ourselves.

Here are my five:

(1) I’m a diehard Seahawks fan. We won our game last night on Thursday Night Football against the Arizona Cardinals, we are now at the top of our league and 6-1 on the season!

(2) The only thing I miss about not working (other than seeing my friends) is wearing my Seahawks Jersey on ‘Blue Fridays,’ and getting my numbers on the football pool.

(3) Lately there has been an up-tick in my image sales and licensing, that’s been nice.

(4) I get to see a vascular surgeon on November 12, thankfully. I’ll be able to get some questions answered about the four blood clots that still remain in my left leg since my cervical fusion surgery (3 vertebrae in my neck were fused).

(5) I’m trying to find some free windows with sills (none on Craigslist yet) to construct a cold frame for my garden.
