When I found myself with extra slices of homemade sourdough bread, and did not want to
freeze it, I decided to make heart croutons. After all, February is right around the corner.
I took my smaller heart cutter and in no time at all, had a large pan filled with the bread
hearts. I sautéed them in with a coating of extra light olive oil, a touch of butter, and
a bit of Jane's seasoning. I cooked them on medium heat, turning often, until they were
golden brown. Upon removing from heat, I let them cool thoroughly. Now, instead of
slices of extra bread, I had lots of delicious heart croutons.
and he is a special guy:), so he got hearts.
My daughter gave me this great idea for salads a few months ago, and I've use it on my
salads since then? It adds a bit of a sweet taste to the salad ingredients.
I cut up the dried mangos or apricots, with a kitchen scissors, and sprinkled them on the salad.
I took some of the croutons and tied them into a clear cellophane bag. I will add it to a salad
gift box that I am putting together as a small gift.
Just a little something from me the "heart lady", who as you know, likes the time of the year
when Valentine's Day comes around.
I want to be the first to wish this very special guy in my life, a Happy 63rd Birthday!
Thank you for stopping by!
