Time flies.

How was it that I last posted on May 14th?

This is very typical of spring and summer in Minnesota. We always seem to have plans and have to take advantage of the nice weather since we only have a few months of it during the summer!

We spent Memorial weekend in Fargo, ND! My best friend and her family live up there and it was a great chance to visit her for the first time since she moved up there. We stayed at the lovely Home2 Suites Extended Stay Hotel for three nights and enjoyed every moment! It was also my birthday weekend, so we celebrated with a BBQ at the hotel!

This weekend we are at my sister's house in Mankato, MN! My niece graduated from high school on Thursday, so we spend the weekend celebrating that, going to garage sales, cooking, playing games and watching cheesy Lifetime movies. The guys went boating and fishing, so it was defintely fun for everyone!

And, next week I'm super excited to be visiting downtown Salt Lake City for the Young Living convention. Yes, in addition to being an Americorp VISTA at a non profit and food blogger, I am also a Young Living Independent Distributor! I sure love my oils and am excited to learn how to grow that part of my business!

Busy has been my middle name lately, but I love every minute of my fun and exciting life!

Today's recipe is for one of my favorite snack foods.... croutons! I also love them on a salad or soup, but most often eat them as a snack.

The great thing about this recipe.... it's inexpensive and a great use for close to date or after date bread. You can use pretty much any bread you have on hand, and this ensures it won't go to waste!

These croutons have a wonderful garlic butter flavor. You really can't go wrong there. I know they are two of my favorite foodie things!

Some of the recipes I'd use these croutons for are: Cheesy Ranch Chicken Hashbrown Casserole, Rustic Dill Tomato Soup, Crab Bisque, Slow Cooker Cheddar, Broccoli and Cauliflower Soup or Creamy Zucchini and Carrot Soup!

I'd also make a lettuce salad and top it with these croutons and these lovely dressings: Strawberry Balsamic Vinaigrette,  Lemony Dill Vinaigrette, or Simple Balsamic Vinaigrette!

So many options, along with your own salads, soups, etc! I also love to grind them in a food processor and use them as a topping for homemade macaroni and cheese! Love that extra flavor! It takes the mac and cheese to a whole new level!
