Homemade Croutons

Homemade Croutons

I don't care what anybody says. Summer is not over. There may be Halloween candy in the drugstore. Public pools are having their last hurrah this weekend. Kids everywhere have gone back to school. And vacation has come and gone for most of us. But summer is not over.

There are still burgers to grill and fireflies to catch. There are still lawns to be mown and flowers to be watered. There is still a bit of light in the sky past 7 each night. There are still toes to be painted and shown off in cute flip flops. And there are still tomatoes to be chopped and put in salads, which brings us to today's quote-unquote recipe: homemade croutons. Take that baguette out of the freezer and let it thaw, or run by the store and buy the oldest one in the bakery. Then drop a glub of olive oil in your (oven-friendly) pan, sprinkle in a little of this and a little of that (spices, that is), and toast away.

It's still hot outside at my house, which means salads (along with a big, juicy, grilled steak) are on tap for the weekend, which starts ... now!
