"As viscous as motor oil swirled in a swamp, redolent of burnt bell peppers nested in by incontinent mice and a finish reminiscent of the dregs of a stale can of Coca-Cola that someone has been using as an ashtray. Not a bad drink, though."--Excerpt from "The Moose Turd Wine Tasting" by T. A. Nonymous

Personal Notes:
The olives sit in a liquid with garlic and herbs; when draining, please try to reserve as much of the herbs and garlic as possible. Alternatively, you can add in your own garlic and freeze-dried basil.
If you do not have an iron skillet, you can use a stoneware baking dish, instead.
It is important to remove bread from pan as soon as it comes out of the oven because bread left in the pan will get moist and soggy.
