Roasted Garlic

I love garlic. I don't know when this started. Growing up, I was a picky eater. Like annoyingly so. But as I got older, and for some reason as Jason and I started dating longer and developing our tastes more, I started to eat more and more things. I'm sure as a kid handing me slimy garlic cloves would have freaked me out a bit, but I love them now.

This recipe is simple. It's easy to throw in the oven when you get home and work out while it is in the oven (I do mat pilates, sit ups, and pushups) and then you end up with a lovely tasty dish to be served with some nice french bread in the end. I made onion soup this day though! (Instead of exercising! Oops.)

What you'll need:
1 Bulb of Garlic
About a tablespoon of olive oil
Seasoned Salt & Pepper (My husband and I use white pepper - we're obsessed)
Bay leaf

First, preheat your oven to 400 degrees. Get some foil and a bulb of garlic.

Take all of the really papery skin off of your bulb of garlic.

Wrap up and throw in the oven for 50 minutes!

Then, take it out, and serve with French bread. It's really easy, requires almost no time, and you can make as many bulbs as you like. Living alone, I like one.

It also helps to have a helper - always. Teemo is always sitting at my feet, staring up at me just like this, hoping for a little bite of something. But no garlic for dogs - it's toxic to them!
