Today I have 2 “recipes.” I call them “recipes” because I don’t have exact measurements or even exact ingredients for them, but I wanted to share them anyways.
1. Old hot dog buns can be made into croutons, as well as almost any other kind of leftover bread. Just cut the buns into bite-sized squares and mix them up with melted butter, oil and whatever seasonings you like (I like garlic powder and oregano). Put them on a cookie sheet in the oven on a very low temperature until they crisp up like croutons!
2. All-kinds-of-bugs-on-a-log! In kindergarten I remember eating ants on a log (celery, peanut butter and raisins), and I still eat it, but recently I kicked it up a notch by using other things in place of the little raisin ants. I put trail mix on it, which has included chocolate chips, peanuts, sunflower seeds, almonds, cashews, raisins, golden raisins and craisins. Gracia prefers this too, since she’s not a fan of raisins. I’ve also done it with nutella which is heavenly on anything!
