Oh, Yum!

You've been to those Italian restaurants that put some olive oil on a plate with some that. But it is so easy to make your own and make it even better. 
My friend Laura Sue turned me on to some dipping from a restaurant...oh my, it was so good. But, I don't live near that restaurant so I had to make my own version.  
Do you want it?  Okay, let's give it a try together.

M's Dipping Oil 

1-2 garlic cloves, minced
1/2 cup olive oil
2 TBSP balsamic vinegar
1 TBSP oregano
1 tsp thyme
1 tsp basil
1 tsp sun dried tomato spice (or 1 TBSP sun dried tomatoes, minced)
1/4 sprig of fresh rosemary
1 handful of freshly grated Romano cheese
2 tsp chili flakes, optional

Combine all and let sit over night. But I know you'll want to try it the same day. 
It will be good the same day too. But even better the next day.

This doesn't make a ton, but unless you are having a big party, 
you'll never go thru it before it goes bad.

Now if you are as good as my friend Katya, you'll make your own bread to go with it.
