“I’ll just have a salad.”
That’s not me.
I eat meat. And fish. And seafood. I eat side salads.
But I rarely eat just a salad.
Except on Monday.
I ate a salad. A homemade salad.
Dinner rolls from Breadsmith on Grand were drying and about to “go bad.” I salvaged them. Cut them up. Olive oiled them up. And sprinkled Penzeys Italian Herb Mix onto them. Convection baked them for about 10 minutes at 325 F. And devoured them.
The crunch from the croutons was incredible. The Italian Herb Mix was phenomenal on the dinner rolls. And my salad was amazing. Fresh. Homemade. And I had just a salad.
Since I was in a home-making mode, hello, I made croutons from scratch, I made myself some piping hot, hot chocolate. With a scoop, or two, of mint chocolate-chip ice cream. No, I did not steal the idea from Martha Stewart. I came up with it before I read it in her Real Simple mag.
