EASY BUT, DIFFERENT GARLIC BREAD:

homemade minced garlic (see recipe below)
homemade roasted garlic olive oil (see recipe below)

Tuscan pane bread
cracked salt and pepper

Put the bread in the toaster over for one cycle (I set my toaster to 1 piece of bread, frozen, level 5) it cooks for about three minutes.

Once done, it should be slightly crisp but, not toasted. In this order: put roasted minced garlic onto the cooked bread (your preference to how much you want; I put quite a bit. Don’t forget, once the garlic is roasted it takes on a new non-potent flavor), drizzle olive oil on top of the garlic, then add salt and pepper to taste)

1 lunch size brown paper bag
1/3 cup organic (or non) popcorn kernels

Place kernels in bad for the top of the bag over twice, place in microwave for 2 minutes. Take out and season as you wish (I use some herbs and garlic, plain, or with a tiny bit of salt. Depending on my mood)
