After a long day of boogie boarding at the beach, it’s pretty bad if you have five, leftover, useless bags of breads and buns from your BBQ. Another problem at home is that my mom always runs out of croutons for my school salad. She looked at both of these challenges and instantly thought, “bingo!” She wanted to use the leftover bread to make croutons! This idea was inspired by my Aunty Lena. “Amazing,” I thought as I ate lunch. I think that homemade anything tastes a whole lot better. Normally, my mom buys garlic croutons to put on top of my salad and I love the taste. I asked if she could make our croutons garlic flavored, so she put some garlic powder on top. The full recipe is garlic powder, salt, pepper, and olive oil put on top of bread. After flavoring the croutons, my mom bakes them for about ten minutes and shazam! We made croutons!
After tasting one, my mouth exploded with delightful flavors. I knew better than to ask for more because they were already way too addictive! Finally a question: what leftover foods can you use to turn into something delicious? I don’t know if you have ever made croutons, but I think my family and I have the best!
Teaser for my next post: There are a lot of food games to play. What food do you think is good for a challenge?
