herbed butter and crostini

We seem to have a string of quick and easy sides lately, so how about another? This hardly constitutes a recipe, but it's ridiculously easy to do, and adds a nice little touch to a dinner. Also, you sound cool saying "crostini."

Basically, just take half a stick of butter and place it into a bowl on the counter to soften.
Meanwhile, cut a loaf of french bread into 1/4" slices, spread them on a baking sheet, and put them in a 375F oven for about 8-10 minutes -- enough to brown the edges and turn them slightly crispy.
As the butter softens, mix in about 2-3 teaspoons of dried herbs. This could also be done with chili powder, garlic powder, or any other combination of herbs and spices you can think of.
Well, not much more to say about mixing herbs in butter and spreading it on bread, so I'll leave it right there!
