    Default I was thirsty.The trials of a old foodie.

    I went into the kitchen with the idea I'd get some ice water outa the
    fridge...I was real thirsty...Mouth dry thristy. Instead I sliced up a
    small onion, 1/2 a red bell pepper and 4 or 5 largish mushrooms plus 2
    cloves elephant garlic. Put them in a foil package with a pat of butter
    salt and pepper plus a drizzle or 2 of maggi sauce. I went outside and lit
    the grill and put the foil package on the grill. That's when I remembered I
    was thirsty and went back into the kitchen and rubbed granulated garlic,
    onion powder, fresh ground black pepper and some chilli powder onto a prime
    rib steak. I then went OH ****! and got some water to drink...Isn't getting
    older fun. At least I'll eat well.

    Are you still thirsty? Or can you remember?

    No I am sipping from a 24 oz mug of cold ice water sitting beside me as I
    survey the melting of the snow that fell this morning. The snow and the
    melting there of has prompted me to grill. I feel If everyone grilled
    today, that it would be a sign to the gods of spring and maybe spring
    would finally get here.

    ps I'm scared to check the mailbox...I might find myself in a different
    town or at the car wash.

    I saw elephant garlic for the first time the other day -- does it taste the
    same? Just curious. Sounds wonderful the way you prepared it!

    I will not use any garlic that is harvested with the use of elephant
    slavery. Power to the Pachyderm, right on. All I am saying is give p's a
    chance.

    So you are telling us that thirst is another symptom
    of senile dementia?

    And they'd remember if they were thirsty, cause elephants have good
