      Great outcome! Had leftover bread to use. I used a food processor and blended bread with some parsley which I needed for a recipe. (Hence why the photo may be a little green.) Then I made more using just bread without parsley, which I have used to freeze. Thanks Deb......Nobody could go wrong with this one
