Flavor Explosion Induces Tourettes

Honestly, I’m not kidding. That’s what happened a few days ago when I was whipping up a garlic herb marinade. I had well-pummeled my ingredients in a mortar and pestle and had decided to have a little sample taste… you know, to balance the flavors.

After one taste, four words uncontrollably escaped my mouth.
Fu*#. Shi#. That’s good.

Apparently, I uttered the phrase so loudly that my boyfriend in the next room overheard me. Anyway, without further ado, here’s the marinade…


Garlic Herb Marinade

Fresh garlic, basil, oregano, crushed red pepper, fennel, salt and pepper, olive oil, and balsamic vinegar.




And this was our meal…
