Late Night Bread

What's better than late night eating just made warm bread watching CHEF!?
We've recently inherited (thanks Brie!) a bread machine for the time being. Along with the machine a book, The Bread Machine Book (over 100 recipes for easy-to-make spectacular breads) by Marjie Lambert. All the recipes we had used before were really good. Adam decided to make Italian Herb Bread. In the book it's described as 'this is a delicious white bread, seasoned with garlic, and italian herbs. it makes delicious cheese or meat sandwiches , and is an excellent dinner bread'
I think it would be really good to grate some asiago or parmesan cheese into the mixture. It's really good, so soft and moist the butter rips right through it, YUM!

Italian Herb Bread 1 1/2 LB Loaf

3 T olive oil
1 or 2 cloves of garlic pressed
1 1/2 t dried basil
3/4 t dried oregano
1/4 t dried rosemary
1/2 t dried thyme
3/4 C water
6 T milk
1 1/2 t sugar
1 1/2 t salt
3 C bread flour
2 1/4 t yeast

- heat oil in small skillet
- add garlic and herbs, saute for 2 mins taking care not to burn the garlic
- put herb oil and remaining ingredients in bread pan in order suggested by your bread machine instructions.
- set for white bread, medium crust
- press start (haha i can't believe press start is actually a direction, really!?)
