Denglish 41: My German Wife Requires Garlic to Make It Tasty

Sometime last year, The Wife and I were discussing our shopping list over the phone. We were planning to make a casserole and our list was nearly complete, but I asked if there were any additional items we might need. She responded thusly:

  1. My family puts garlic on EVERYTHING. My husband tells people that when we were first married he would smell it from the driveway and know that I had been cooking. He doesn’t say he can smell it anymore. Nor does he complain that things are too garlicky. I’m converting him to the dark side.
