(C) Day is about Croutons. Since I'm a Texas girl, these croutons must be made with cornbread, of course. Cut small, these are great on top of salads and soups. Cut larger, they are wonderful snacks and even better when dipped in your favorite sauce.

Mix up a double batch of your favorite cornbread mix and include the following.
1/2 cup finely diced onions
2 tablespoons minced garlic
1/4 cup minced bell pepper
(Optional) Jalapeno to taste
1 tsp. sage
Melt 1 stick of butter and drizzle over pieces, Sprinkle one package of dry Ranch Dressing Mix over croutons and stir gently to distribute. Bake at 375° stirring occasionally until croutons are crunchy and toasty brown.
Writing Prompt: Construct a scene including one or all of the following elements.
- Kattie knew better than to explore her new cave find on her own. Spelunking wasn't a safe one-man sport. Due to her own stupidity, she was now lost.
- She still had 4-5 days worth of water and a few of her mom's cornbread croutons stashed in her backpack.
- The fear eating at her sanity wasn't due to lack of food or water, but rather, the sound coming from the dark region of the cave that grew louder with each ticking minute.
