Spinach Garlic Bread

I saw this bread at another blog - see above link, and since it had spinach and garlic, I knew it had to be delicious - I was right! I made this in the bread maker:

1 cup water

2.5 cup flour

1/4 cup oil (or margarine or butter)

*I had some roasted garlic in olive oil in my refrigerator, I used that and 1 Tablespoon of butter*

1 T of sugar

1 tsp salt

2 tsp yeast

1/2 bag of fresh spinach - chopped or torn

2 Tablespoons of garlic

This complimented a spaghetti dinner beautifully!
