Dovetailing Tips: Garlic is the star of the show this week and that means you will be mincing away today! Garlic can be kept for up to a week in the fridge, without any added oil, so you can get it all minced and sliced today and save big time all week long! You will want to mince 5 cloves and slice one clove. I know that sounds like a lot of flavor (and possibly bad breath), but it will go in to lots of fabulous recipes this week.

Also get ahead by chopping an additional 1/2 cup of onions. You are already doing 2 cups for tonight, so it won't really be extra work at all and you will be so glad you have it on Thursday!


Dovetailing Tips: Use your garlic stockpile for this tasty entree!


Dovetailing Tips: Today you are making amazing Divine Breadsticks! The recipe makes 20-24 sticks so there are plent for 2 meals (and trust me, you will want them again!). Use the extras on Friday with the Fusilli alla Caprese!


Dovetailing Tips: I love Thursdays and Fridays for so many reasons, but especially because all of our dovetailing work pays off! You are all prepared with your garlic and onion!


Dovetailing Tips: Garlic and Divine Breadsticks are ready for you. Enjoy this meal and have a great weekend!
