Homemade Whole Wheat Croutons


I just came back from a spring break, that was quite, well stressful. We were invited to go to Orlando for a week, and we graciously accepted (lodging would be free). It was going to be a pretty short trip, four nights and five days, so we thought, what the heck, we would check out Disneyland while we’re there -and sort of wing the rest. Our son was a little under the weather last weekend when we were scheduled to leave, but we thought that we’d power through, and went anyways.  As my son recovered, my daughter got the bug that my son must have had to, shortly after we arrived. So we both were busy tending sick kids, while watching the glorious weather from inside the rented house.


 We managed to venture out to Animal Kingdom for one day, and spent a couple of hours in the actual Magic Kingdom, then it was time to go home. On top of all of the craziness last week, we even got a flat tire on the way to Magic Kingdom. I have been renting cars for over 15 years, and this was the first time that I ever had a flat tire!! We’re all back home now, back to the grind and both kids are back in full-health, and I can’t be happier. While it was disappointing to have not been able to spend more time exploring the themed parks, we were all ready to be home. I celebrated us being home with this glorious lunch of Roasted Winter Vegetables Salad,  and topped them with these homemade croutons. It’s so good to be home!

Homemade Whole Wheat Croutons

Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. On a rimmed baking sheet, toss the cubed bread pieces with olive oil. Lightly sprinkle with salt, and freshly ground black pepper. Roast for about 20-25-minutes until they're thoroughly baked.
