Making Seasoned Breadcrumbs

It was time to clean out the freezer. I came across several bags of unused breads, of varing kinds. I grabbed them out and decided to not only clear out some freezer space, but to feed my family with what was destined to be tossed.
Breadcrumb Recipe: (stop laughing)
  • bread
  • seasoning (use what you like)
I toasted the bread in a warm oven, to bring out the yummo factor. Tearing it into smaller pieces, so it didn't wedge itself in my food processor. I tossed it in the processor (I did several batches) and added seasoning. I used sea salt, oregano, garlic, basil and a secret baptism of sweet Hungarian paprika. Whirled it until medium fine crumbs manifested themselves. I carefully moved them to a freezer safe container; where they'd await my beckoning to come and help me with dinner.
Isn't cooking fun?

Yes .. .cooking is fun .. and it feels so good to not waste what we have. I love making my own croutons from thinly sliced baguettes that are left over. . .toast them .. drizzle them with garlic butter . .and voila. . .fancy croutons.

For the most part, I don't think cooking is fun. I'm not sure if it's lack of creativity or the time it takes to accomplish it. I'm going to use you as an inspiration and see if I can't learn to like it.
