FMITIL According to Miriam

My daughter Miriam was helping me make garlic bread today and she blurted that there are five most important things in life (FMITIL).

  1. God
  2. Internal Organs
  3. Family and Friends
  4. Grandma's Apple Pie
  5. Garlic Bread
Other than the first one on the list, the reason and the order that they come are not known to me.  However there is one thing that I know very well...the Garlic Bread that she talks about.  Here's the recipe direct from the Lewis Family Cookbook, that has not been written:

Lewis Family Garlic Bread

4 tbsp butter
1/3 lb cream cheese
3 cloves of garlic (minced)
1 tsp dried parsley (optional)
1 tbsp grated Parmesan cheese (optional)
1 loaf Pugleise Bread (1 lb)
Combine the first four ingredients.  If necessary, soften the cream cheese in the microwave for 15 seconds.  Cut the bread across lengthwise in half.  Spread the butter and cream cheese mixture on the cut surface of the bread.  Sprinkle parmesan cheese if desired.  Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes or until the edges of the bread turn golden brown.  Take out from the oven.  Cut bread into convenient pieces.  I like to hold the bread with tongs and cut with kitchen shears.  Enjoy the fifth most important thing in life!
