    I've made bread crumbs from my homemade bread that's gone stale. That doesn't happen a lot because DH eats most all the bread and what he doesn't the girls get as a rare treat. But when I've done it, I like to brush the bread lightly with a little olive oil, sprinkle seasoning on it (like Italian or whatever fits the dish we're making), cube it and bake until crispy. We've never had any leftover to store, so not sure about that part.

    If using fresh bread, I like to toast it a bit to make it easier to work with and faster drying in the oven.


    I'll keep my eye out for a roadside stand! I've been checking at the grocery store and their peaches have come from CA...I'd much prefer the wonderful GA ones. Thanks for the heads up!

    Tried a new pull apart bread recipe today. DH and I both really liked it. It's Golden Cheese Bread from King Arthur's website. Here's the recipe link, and below I've noted the changes I made to it.
    http://www.kingarthurflour.com/recipes/golden-cheese-bread-recipe

    * Instead of the 2 flours in the recipe, I just used all purpose flour (had to add a bit more, the dough was pretty sticky)
    * Didn't have any of their Vermont Cheese Powder, so skipped it
    * For their Pizza Dough Flavor, I used an Italian Seasoning blend we have
    * Instead of onion powder, I used garlic powder
    * For the cheese, I used about 2 1/4 cups of Mozzarella

    This one could be really versatile. I'll make it with cheddar and some other seasoning next time.

    I still need to read this whole thread... but can I just say, chicken people must be my people! It's like every hobby here is one of mine, and baking is a BIG part of my life. I remember being less than ten and being patiently taught by my Mawmaw how to make bread. Aww, warm fuzzy thoughts. I used to decorate cakes for extra cash back when I had less than or equal to two kids, now my time is too divided, but I do enjoy it still for fun!

    LOL You know why? I stalked for so long before posting I didn't feel new!

    Tonight I am starting refrigerator cinnamon rolls for breakfast tomorrow and garlic parmesan knots to go with dinner. ;)

    Yes, Welcome and it is great having you here!

    I started making a 6 loaf or so batch of bread a week when I was 12. We usually ate the first loaf out of the oven.

    Last night my youngest Daughter asked me to make peanut butter cookies. They were great!

    I might make overnight rolls this weekend. I have all the stuff for them--they are a converted caramel roll recipe.
