Garlic bread

I know alot of people who love garlic bread and I myself fall into that category too. I love garlic and I love bread. So, how will I not like garlic bread? Serves as a great accompaniment for soups, pizza or fried chicken. I, usually, serve it with tandoori chicken. Usually garlic bread is made with garlic butter. But, to be on the healthier side, I've added a mix of olive oil instead of using large quantities of butter alone.
I'm not scribbling much today and that may provide some relief to many of you.
Just want to let you know one more thing. I received a huge bundle of awards from Purva of Thanks Purva
I also got a friends award from Lavanya of Thank you Lavanya. Much appreciated.
