Garlic Day

Spring days, here in Utah, can be a little depressing at times. In-between all the cloudy, snowy, and rainy days, the sun will peek through off and on. I’m so ready for blue skies and warm sun.  But, it is spring, so there’s hope, especially when I see crocus peeking through the snow, and then the bright daffodils and tulips spreading the spring colors.  


Now, did you know it’s National Garlic Day on April 19? 

What garlicky foods do you like: garlic bread, garlic pasta, garlic dips – I could go on forever. Did you know garlic is native to Asia which dates back to 6,000 years? It’s also a staple of Mediterranean diets and used in Africa, Asia and Europe cuisines. China is now the world’s biggest producer of garlic. By the way, garlic is a vegetable, very pungent and a member of the allium family (onion and leeks). It usually used as a spice and not a vegetable because of its strong flavor.

Garlic is also healthy for you. It’s linked to reducing or helping prevent four of the major causes of death, including cancer, heart diseases, strokes and infections.

There’s a couple of thing I want to share with you:

Our Three Romance Authors and a Book Club will be reading Classic Murder by Mary Martinez for our discussion in May. Come join us. Check out our Facebook page: Click Here

Big Event’s coming up:
Mary Martinez and I have a special event coming up on May 19, 2019. If you’re anywhere in the Salt Lake City area, I love for you to join us. It will be a fun afternoon of tasting new spring wines, books and lots to eat.
I’ll be there, along with Mary Martinez. It’ll be a fun time talking books and tasting wine at We Olive in Trolley Square.

Brett Ludemann of Flora Fauna Wines will guide us in a sensory examination and evaluation of white and rosé wines. They will be paired with delicious bites prepared by We Olive Wine Bar.

Wine basket full of goodies and free books from the authors.

I’ll be attending a writing retreat with Mary Martinez, Stanalei Fletcher, and Kyann Waters this weekend. I’m so ready to do some writing since it’s been on hold for several months since my sister is living with us and having cancer treatments. She’s moving forward – one day at a time.

Have a great Spring.
