Compound Butter

I make this and freeze it in icecubes.  Let your imagine run wild with variations (rosemary/parmesan, blue cheese/cracked pepper, chipotle/cilantro, etc).  It makes an easy side dish with any veggie, great sauce for fish, chicken or beef or an excellent spread for bread.  Tonight I made it with green beans.

1 stick butter, softened
2 cloves garlic, minced
4 Tbsp minced herbs (sage, parsley, basil, thyme, etc)
salt and pepper to taste
Combine all until light and fluffy.  Freeze in ice cube trays.
