Who Needs Perfume When We've Got Garlic and Onions?

February 22nd, 2011 at 12:26 am

There's just something aromatic about sauting garlic and onions and even celery in olive oil. So many good smells emit from the kitchen.

I sauted onions, celery, and mushrooms for the brisket and then added some garlic. My husband came into the kitchen and told me, "It sure smells good in here." I had to laugh. He doesn't care for fancy perfumes, but he sure likes the aromas of food cooking.

I know when I bake bread he likes it too. I remember last year when I baked bread at school people would open my classroom door to get a whiff and then smile. We humans like good smellin' stuff!

Somehow I don't think I'll be putting a little olive oil and garlic behind my ears, but I'm happy about making my hubby pleased. Think of the money I'm saving him in perfume by cooking and having that great smell? Am I being frugal????

So, what is your favorite aroma?

    Down in New Orleans we call onions, garlic and celery the holy trinity. It's the start of every single good thing in the kitchen...

    I love the mix of basil, oregano, and thyme with onions, garlic and tomatoes. There's just something so delicious about that scent. And fresh baked pretzels and bread, of course.
