Grilled Garlic Bread

My little Son One likes to help in the kitchen sometimes, but it is always things he just can't do.

"Mom, let me see your knife. I will cut those onions for you!"

"I will pour the oil in the pan for you."

"I can turn on the grill for you."

No, you actually can't. But you can put the silverware away, get the napkins out and go wash your hands. When Jack asks to do things that are too mature for him to do, my answer is, "Not until you are as tall as Dad". That goes for most of the things he asks for, such as long kisses from girls, having kids, getting married, owning a gun, buying a train, flying a plane and grilling.

1/2 cup butter, softened
1 Tbsp dried basil
1 tsp dried rosemary
1/2 tsp kosher salt
4 cloves garlic, minced
1 loaf French bread, cut into 14 slices

Heat grill to medium high

In a small bowl, combine the butter, basil, rosemary, salt and garlic. Mix with a rubber scraper. Spread butter onto one side of the bread slices. Grill bread slices for 1-2 minutes on each side.

You're a really mean mom for not letting Jack turn on the grill and fly planes.

I'd say he's old enough now to use a knife. And run with scissors too.

Oh, that's an excellent response! I of course won't be able to say that for my daughter who will probably be as tall as me by the time she's 13/14 but it will work for a few more years with the twins! YAY!

Your garlic bread looks DELISH! I LOVE garlic. I don't even need the meal it goes with. Just give me da'bread! :)
