  1. I’ve made this before, several times! My son asks for it constantly!! We’ve adapted it to how we like it, er how HE likes it. I swear, he could eat the entire batch himself! Thanks!

  2. I don’t really get the two crock-pot thing. I would think that it would all fit in one 6qt slow cooker or are you doubling it? Looks good and am printing off for my Sept cooking day.
    Thanks

    1. Oops, I copied the directions that I wrote for the September menu. I fixed that! Thanks, you are right, it fits in one slow cooker if you are just doing one batch!

  3. Can you freeze the croutons? And then just thaw?Or would it taste better to freeze the loaf of bread and then toast just before eating?
