Strong to the finich

A simple spinach and tomato salad is a great excuse to make homemade croutons! I always forget how easy these crunchy little things are to make. When I have a slice or two of thick homemade bread left over, I just cube it, toss the pieces on a baking sheet, and drizzle them with olive oil. Then I sprinkle a little salt, pepper, basil, and oregano on there and bake the croutons for a few minutes at 400 degrees. As if Ben and I needed another food genre to be food snobs about, we will now never eat croutons from a box again! Even the ones in the fancy boxes don't compare to these.
