-Day 82-
Just watched the first FREE 5 minutes of Twilight on pay per view & just HAD to come in here & stick Ashley's cd in & listen to 'Full Moon' that song with the classical guitar & all. Don't laugh at me, Ella!! picture of the day today was my home-made croutons that we had on our salad tonight for supper. This was the first time I ever made these & they turned out SO good. I had about 1/3 of a loaf of fat bread that had a couple little moldy spots on it, so I scraped that off & cubed the bread & viola....yummy restaurant-style croutons. For anyone that's interested in trying these, the recipe is really simple:
4 slices homemade bread (french bread)
2 Tbs. Parmesan cheese
1/4 tsp. oregano
1/4 tsp. celery salt
1/4 tsp. garlic salt
2 Tbs. oil
Slice bread into 3/8" cubes & place in bowl. Add seasonings & oil. Toss well to mix & place on cookie sheet & bake at 300 degrees til crisp. Cool. Store in glass jar. Costs about 1/3 of store bought.
* I had the oven already on 425 cooking my baked potatoes, so I went ahead & stuck my croutons in & they were perfect in about 5 minutes or so. Like Cracker Barrel's croutons....crispy on the outside & soft inside. Love 'em!
-Day 81-One of Ma-Lady's kittens...long story, but she had them up in a hollow spot in our big old Maple tree (kittens have been born up there many times before) & this little girl FELL out of the tree yesterday. Scared us to death. Thankfully she was ok & Ma-Lady took her back up there so all is well...for the time being anyway.
