Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
When my Mom was a young girl...her Mother sent her to the cellar to get an onion to make scalloped potatoes with. She came up with a whole head of garlic and told her Mother she could not find any onions. Her Mom told her that was okay and to use one clove of garlic instead. My Mom used a whole head of garlic and made the scalloped potatoes. My Mother tells me the story (while laughing hysterically) that my Uncle Frank and Grandpa Currier never ate garlic again.

Now to our amazing Dad who said he hated garlic and would never eat anything with garlic in it...It was finally admitted to, in Dad's final mass, that Mom did put garlic in the sauce... know what?....We all know that Dad probably knew it all along...and he ate it anyway. LOVE YOU Dad and miss you every day.
