       A salute to garlic!  There's a lot of garlic in this meal - but it's Friday and garlic is good for us.  It's all cooked so the flavor is mild.

Sautéed Shrimp (Prawns) in Lemon and Garlic Butter

Total time: 25 minutes
     The smell of garlic slowly cooking in butter is only improved by the addition of shrimp, lemon and parsley. You could substitute 1 tbs of olive oil for 1 tbs of the butter if you wish - or use all olive oil. But we don't (usually) eat a lot of butter, so we indulge in this recipe.

Broccoli with Garlic Chips  

Total time: 25 minutes
    Fry the garlic until it is a lovely golden brown.  The little chips are very tasty; not at all sharp like raw garlic, but not creamy like roasted.  If you prefer less garlic, just use the flavored oil - and let someone else munch on the chips.
