Muffin Tin Monday Thinly Unplugged

"Sukhariki" is one of the few Russian words in common usage in our household. It translates as "crouton," but we use it more like toast.

This batch was cut thin from the remnants of last Friday's french bread. I tossed the bread with olive oil, kosher salt, oregano and garlic powder. It was baked at 300 degrees for precisely the amount of time it took to slice the vegetables. I don't always bother with oil, and we vary the spices according to our whim.

I hope that the Unplugged families will appreciate my lame attempt at integrating this week's theme -- thin -- into our lunch. Except for the broccoli all of the foods were exceptionally thin.

It is also our first time participating in Muffin Tin Monday. The girls really liked having a new presentation for our frequent "bits-and-bobs"lunch, so we may do this again next week.

I for one absolutely appreciate your effort at "thin". I have been totally unable to come up with a thing for the Unplugged Projects for weeks, so you're one up on me! I have got to try one of the Muffin Tin lunches with CJ- I have a feeling she'd love it. Thanks for the reminder.
