The Case of the Crunchy Crouton

I like being single.  I like not having to justify the extensive Lifetime movie collection that is on my DVR.  By the way, tonight’s feature Mother, May I Sleep With Danger , and my mother  would have said NO!  I can pink the place up, although I haven’t.  I’m the one that I’m answering too and that feels good.

Having said that, there are downsides to being single. one of them is the bread thing. As in a good portion of my bread goes stale before I can finish it.  I like my bread soft and squishy, so  it’s a problem. So what’s a gal to do with her stale bread?  Well, if she has a big to her kitchen, she learns to make croutons!

Watch me!

See? Look at that stale bread!

I cut them up in croutony bits.

..then I put them in the mixing bowl, one of a set I got at an estate sale. it’s a pretty awesome bowl, no?

See? I am even mixing ingredients ! That is  1/2 teaspoon of garlic salt  and 1 teaspoon of parsley flakes.

But wait, there is more…

add 3 tablespoons of melted butter. Give everything a good stir till the garlic salt dissolves. 

Mix it all together.

Now while I was doing all that other stuff  I had my oven preheating to 300 degrees. As you can see you just have to through your little crouties on a baking sheet and pop them in the oven for 15 minutes.

Hey, I have an idea while we wait, how about we check what is going on in the rest of the house.

Oh look, it’s Snoozy McSnore.

Back to the kitchen…

Hey, this actually worked!

Seriously, look at how good they look!  They taste even better! I have to confess that tonight’s salad tasted  yummo!

Who knows, tomorrow I might try making jello!  Don’t laugh, I’ve totally botched that one in the past.
