Soo over chemical equations...

Yep. These ridiculous pictures explain my tiredness and frustration. But with reason! A 14 pg chem lab report is no fun over Christmas break. Esters and their formation anyone? Butyl Butyrate? Smells like pineapple. Butyl Acetate? Bananas. Okay enough of that. I handed it in and therefore I can forget allll about it. JK.

But writing a lab report does work up quite an appetite. My mom surprised my be coming home with tons of food, including mini bread slices. Those babies are perfect for mini garlic bread slices. This recipe is an easy way to make cheesy garlic bread super fast.

Pan Toasted Garlic Bread
from Land O Lakes "Treasure of Country Recipes"

1/3 cup butter (I thought this was too much and made the bread a little soggy)
1/8 cayenne pepper
1 tsp. minced fresh garlic
1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
6 baguette slices
*I think a sprinkle of paprika adds so much flavor and taste so I added it on top when the cheese was melted.

In a skillet melt your butter until sizzling. Stir in cayenne pepper and garlic. Dip both sides of each bread slice in melted butter. Cook over medium heat until bread is lightly toasted (2-3 minutes). Turn bread over and sprinkle each slice with about 1 tbsp. cheese. Cover and cook to steam the cheese until it is melted.

    I'm glad you enjoyed the garlic toast. I'm even more glad that you're done with the Chemistry paper.

    Oh, I don't miss those days! The garlic toast on the other hand is a whole other story. I'm gonna try this way.

    Happy New Year!
