"We will be known forever by the tracks we leave." ~ Proverb
NOTE: I spend my Wednesdays Unplugged from appointments. It's my day to stay home, enjoy cooking and welcome our kids and grandkids for dinner in the evening. We end our meal with quotes from the Norwegian 'Quote Cup' passed on to me from my grandmother. I share a quote and a recipe here each week, and sometimes some photos of family fun. I love trying new recipes…and love getting recipes you would like to share!
This past week has been quite a week. Our grandson didn't have school Thursday and Friday so he hung out with us… one of his highlights was making puppy chow! It was Art Attack weekend and we bought our anniversary artwork… an oil and cold wax painting by Mary Meuwissen, a good friend of another friend who died of cancer this year. We also ran into John's cousin at MBMB. An then of course there was election day where John was an election judge putting in a long day… about 90% of his precinct voted. We are still in a state of shock… heading up to Lake Superior to decompress for a few days.
RECIPE OF THE WEEK
This is an old recipe, but such a favorite with our family I thought it was time to share again… I first posted it shortly before Obama was first elected President in 2008. These are delicious croutons for salads, but our family likes to munch on them like an appetizer or chips. Most of the time we eat them without even adding the Parmesan cheese.
- 1 large loaf French bread, not sliced
- 2 sticks butter
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 2 cloves garlic, minced fine
- Seasoned salt of your choice
- Parmesan cheese
Cut bread in approximately 1/2 inch squares. Melt butter, olive oil and garlic together. Toss bread cubes in butter mixture. Put single layer of bread cubes on jelly roll pan or roaster. Sprinkle on seasoned salt to taste. Bake in 350 degree oven for about 1/2 hour until golden, turning every 10 minutes during cooking time. Remove from oven and sprinkle with Parmesan cheese while still hot if desired.
