Garlic Bread & a wee Blog 'Award'
Yesterday, I had a strange craving for garlic bread. I haven't had garlic bread in at least 8 years and I've never made it myself, but I am never one to ignore a good food craving, so I took a stab at it. I baked one unpeeled clove of garlic (on a wee enamelware plate) in the oven at 400°F/200°C for about 5-8 minutes (until tender/mushy). While the garlic was baking, I spread some non-hydrogenated (I can taste hydrogenated oils a mile away, blech) margarine on some bread, but you could use olive oil or coconut oil,* too. Once the garlic was done, I peeled it and spread it across the bread, sprinkled the tiniest amount of salt on it, and baked the bread for a few minutes so it was warm and just starting to get toasty and all the margarine had melted and all the flavours were mingling delightfully. Then I took it out of the oven and ate it all up! (Actually, I shared one slice with my kids.)
* Coconut oil makes an excellent substitution for unsalted butter, if you ask me.
Aaand...Johanna GGG from gggiraffe nominated me for a Liebster Blog Award, the idea of which is to bring attention to blogs with fewer than 200 followers. So with that in mind, I hereby nominate the following blogs:
