It’s Twofer Tuesday time again. I get to share with you what I’ve been reading. And what’s more fun, for me anyway, what I’ve been writing.
Two of the sentences I’ve read this week come from a book on curing heart disease lent to me by my FIL.
From Jean Carper’s The Miracle Heart: The Ultimate Guide to Preventing and Curing Heart Disease with Diet and Supplements (Harper Paperbacks February 2000) we learn how to release the anti-coagulant compound ajoene from garlic:
“Add just enough vodka to cover crushed garlic, and let steep for several days uncovered. This releases ajoene.”
Mine are nowhere near as tasty or useful, but I hope you at least get a kick out of my efforts from A Fly on the Wall. I’ve thrown in a few extras for context.
“’Oh gracious groundsel, said Mrs. Ingetuckle. ‘She doesn’t look familiar to me at all. I wonder how she got the mirror? I though it was going to be Miss Eleanor again. Oh, it’s exciting to be wrong.’
Mrs. Phlebos reached out a hand and patted Mrs. Ingetuckle on the arm. ‘You must be in a constant state of excitement, dear.’”
