Today I Made My Own Breadcrumbs
To most people, an insignificant event, I realize. But for me, it was an early step to becoming more frugal and resourceful and a better, more creative cook. It was very easy: gather up the bread heels and other leftover bits of bread I’ve been saving, toast them in the oven for 15 minutes, tear them into bits, and run them through the blender. But, never having done it before, it took more mental energy than I had available while working (almost) full-time.
