How to use old bread.

I threw a party for my husband’s birthday over the weekend.  We had lots of friends over to celebrate.  I made finger foods and pies for everyone’s enjoyment.  Our kitchen is now trashed and we have some strange combinations of leftovers that we will be snacking on for the rest of the week.  My kind of after party!

There is one lonely italian baguette sitting on my counter that I don’t want to throw away and is getting a bit to unfresh to just eat.  So, I thought I would spend the morning looking for creative ways to use old bread.
