I just realized that I had left the thinly cut across garlic scapes from two-days-ago's recipe. I have now added them. For those without a garden or at a different season, a greater quantity of chives can be substituted. Scapes are the green shoots that are out growth of those pesky green germs in oldish cloves of garlic. Their peskiness is off set by these old cloves being planted to make new heads. They can be cut off the plant when about eight inches long. This will not hurt the plant.
