We’re back today – with bread crumbs and a playlist!
First, the bread crumbs. I’ve seen Ina (Barefoot Contessa) make them several times, always thinking – really?! Why have something else to clean (the food processor), when you can just grab some from the cupboard, right? Well, they were actually really easy to make – and I imagine a blender would work too. To make them, I put 3 slices of whole wheat bread into the food processor, fitted with the standard blade, pressed “on” and voila! The difference with homemade is they are much fluffier bread crumbs – and to be honest, I also really like the idea of bread crumbs that are as natural as the bread I choose to use. I don’t think I’ll go all out and make my own bread and then make those bread crumbs – but it’s nice to know how easy the crumbs are to make. Although, I do have a loaf of bread in the freezer, so there’s that – since we don’t eat much bread – and I still don’t know if thawed out or toasted bread would make decent bread crumbs. Looks like another experiment!
Now, your September playlist – I’ve been listening to this mix on shuffle, nonstop. Good thing October and a new mix are just a few weeks away! Have a great weekend (and sweet New Year)! What are you listening to and experimenting with?
