Greetings my friends, I have been quiet on WordPress lately, taking time out to travel and enjoy the world.
I love the fun in travelling, every moment is a new experience, the feel of the wind flowing through the car as we cross some of the great Australian roads.
Open spaces with native trees, red earth soil and the occasional kangaroo and Emu crossing the roads in front of us.
We do a number of trips every few months now, from the cold mountain high countries to the oceans of South Australia.
Our next trip in a few weeks is off to Coober Pedy in South Australia, this town is renowned for the best Opals in the world, being an opal mining town, the houses are primarily built underground due to the heat of the desert, when you drive into the town it seems like something out of an alien movie, nothing but a landscape of TV aerials covering the landscape.
After some opal mining we are heading up to Ayers Rock, the centre of Australia, Ayers rock is normally known as Uluru in Aboriginal language, it is the biggest rock in Australia and hold great spiritual meaning and power for the Aboriginals.
So much for the first part of my blog, now I will change the subject completely, now I want to talk about Garlic. Yes the humble Garlic boys and girls.
I enjoy cooking and garlic plays a major part in all my dishes, it has great medicinal qualities, havent seen a dentist or a vampire in years since using it.
The problem with garlic is getting the skin off it, painstakingly peeling each clove and dicing it up.
Well I dont normally post other peoples culinary hints but in this case I make it an exception.
This video showed me how to skin garlic in virtually 20 seconds, I call it defrocking the garlic.
This method does actually work and is quite amazing, give it a try and it will save you much time if your a garlic lover.

Stay well and keep smiling
