One of my favorite side dishes is my garlic bread. My family loves to have it anytime I make something saucy, soups, stews or any other savory, dunkable meal. Now, if you’re watching calories, then this recipe is not for you. I put a lot of butter in it.
I start with a crusty loaf of Italian bread or a crusty French baguette, cut into easier to work with pieces and slice down the middle.
One of the things I love to do is to make beaded jewelry. I like the colors, the sparkles and just the way they feel in my hand. Twice a year, the Gem Faire comes to town and I can come home with a great haul of precious and semi-precious gem stones, crystals, and a great assortment of findings. I also look for the sales at Michael’s and Joann’s for their fancy beads.
Here are some necklaces I’ve made from my hauls Joann’s and Michael’s.
