Um...can they pass as pumpernickle?

I rarely make my own croutons; they always turn out very disappointing but a few weeks ago I was at my friend Jessica's house and she had freshly made croutons cooling on a baking sheet. I found myself, in another person's house!, picking them off the sheet and eating them. They were so good and rich with buttery edges so today I tried making some croutons with left over bread and I've got to say, they really didn't turn out so well.

So, I was inspired to re-try my hand at homemade croutons and I've, once again, convinced myself to not try them again for a little while yet.

I am wondering if we can just tell ourselves that they are Pumpernickel croutons?

And because there isn't much color in this post, I'll post another photo of my super fabulous shoes!!!

For delicious home made croutons see my post "Home-made Garlic Croutons" at weecookery.blogspot.com The children made these and gobble them up. When I make a batch I don't bother to make a salad, I just snack on the croutons. They are also good in soup. Warning: You will wake up with garlic breath after eating these. Lynnea, do try again using this simple recipe.
