Crunchy munchy

7 Small Shawls: T - 96 days and counting down.

Well. I did it. As wonderful as the name my little Bear dreamed up was (rosemary-go-round), the only constant in life is change. So my blog has a new name! Enter @ Romi's Studio. Just like my Ravelry group. Woot!!!

Ahem. Anyway.

First priority is a public service announcement. For those wanting to make Celaeno in the same yarn I used (Enya Sock in New Moon), Dee of Saffron Dyeworks is having a shop update on September 27th at 7pm EST. Here's a preview of the yumminess. New Moon has been selling out super fast! So, to get your own skein of gorgeousness, don't be late!
(Note: Celaeno, the single pattern will be out in the next couple of days. Right now, you can only purchase it as part of my 7 Small Shawls eBook subscription.)

Here's a fun and quick little item to make. Mr. Romi makes incredibly delicious bread in our bread maker and we always have left-over ends. Usually we put them out for the birds, but the Bear has been asking me to make croutons that he can eat. Most store-bought croutons have dairy or egg in them and he's allergic. So the other day I finally cut the ends into 1/2 inch cubes, put them in a bowl, drizzled olive oil on them, added herbs, and tossed them until coated. Then I baked them for 20 minutes on cookie sheets in a preheated 250 F oven until golden brown. And here they are. I don't know why I didn't do this before! So easy. So delicious! French bread is particularly perfect.
Golden brown crunchy and yummy! And Bear safe. :)

This past weekend was a swim meet. Both days. It was hot. It was long. I'm going to vegetate now. Ciao!

These look great, as does the bread. Care to share a recipe or link for the bread?

The croutons look yummy. I usually brown them in garlic scented olive oil on the stove top. I'll have to try it your way.

Congrats on the new name!

Yummy looking croutons. My boys are constantly stealing croutons for snacks, so half the time our salads have Cheezits on them instead.
