How to get your kids to eat salad!

Saving on your grocery bill is something you can do by not wasting what you already have. Do you ever end up throwing out the last few pieces of dry, stale bread? No one wants a sandwich with that old stuff! Turn those crusty things into yummy croutons, and it hardly takes any time at all! I don't ever buy those expensive boxes of croutons they sell at the store. These croutons are so good, my kids like to eat them as a snack!! And they don't break your teeth like the store-bought variety.

As many slices of bread as you have or want to use. This recipe can be adjusted for amount and personal taste. 
Olive Oil (1/4 cup or so)
Garlic Salt - 2 tsp
Oregano - 1 tsp
Grated Parmesan Cheese - 1 TBS

Stack the bread and cut into cubes -put into a ziploc bag
Mix oil and seasonings - Pour into bag with bread cubes
Mix well - if you misjudge the amount needed to cover bread, just add more ;-)
Place in a single layer on a baking sheet
Cook in oven on 300 for 30 minutes or so turning once.
(If you like them crunchier, cook longer; chewier, cook less)

Wa-La! You have a delish topping for your salad! Don't worry about what to do with left-overs. There are never any least not at my house!
