how to use a stale loaf of bread
I had this lovely artisan loaf of bread that just never got sliced with our salad the other night, or our for our lunches, I could not throw it away and had been wanting to make either bread salad or soup for about a year, never finding the right recipe or having the right ingredients on hand, it never happened during the summer and today's dreary overcast cold day felt like soup weather, last week i had made shrimp stock by boiling the shrimp shells and vegi ends i had laying about, so i wanted to use that today with the bread, fearful of the fishy taste i found this recipe and decided the abundant garlic should balance with the fishyness of the homemade stock.....super easy recipe, all ingredients on hand and very economical to boot! http://www.recipezaar.com/Emerils-Garlicy-Bread-Soup-15012 even weirder it made so much soup we have enough left for 3 more bowls later this weekend......it is very garlicky which i love! and now I feel great for having given my abandoned bread somewhere to shine!
