Craving some Allium sativum L.

I have this Middle Eastern herb mix called Za'atar that I like to mix with olive oil and some fresh garlic puree that we buy from the Lebanese Taverna market. I eat the herb/garlic mixture on a pita bread. Today I didn't have the garlic spread so I cut a clove in half and pressed it into my mixture of herbs and oil. I spread this on the pita and put it under the broiler till the bread got a little crispy on the edges.

So good and garlicky.. but apparently that wasn't enough to satisfy my craving for garlic. So I put these guys in the oven with a nice drizzle of olive oil and a dash of salt. They are SO good...I've eaten 5 cloves already! Something tells me I'm going to smell be very aromatic this week.
