Garlic Oil and Spaghetti Pancakes

I made some Garlic Oil which was quite easy. I started out with a small batch just to see how it goes. I see where it could come in quite handy (brush it on veggies before roasting, throwing in recipes quick when I don't have time to mince garlic, etc.) but it's one of those things I'll have to give an update on later when I try it out. I'm a little nervous about it though as CD makes a BIG DEAL about NEVER letting it sit out even for a minute to avoid it going bad and making me sick. I did get to use it making Spaghetti Pancakes (which were quite quick and easy - thank you garlic oil). The pancakes are pretty good. I made a half a batch. You just have to try it. They are really good though I'm not sure it's something I would have thought "OOO..I've got to try that!". Next time though, I'll bump up the spices quite a bit and, now that I'm eating it (as I'm typing) I'm thinking it might be good with sugar and cinnamon instead of crushed red pepper along with a powdered sugar topping...and maybe some fruit..... on another note, I am making a second batch of Thai Crystal today. I guess it's a keeper.
