Whenever you have stale bread, rather than tossing it, toast it and give it a whirl in a food processor. Store the breadcrumbs in a resealable plastic baggie in the freezer for casseroles, breaded meats and vegetables, and pasta dishes. If you're short for ideas, these 10 recipes will help inspire you to use up your stash, before your breadcrumbs become stale!
Some might call it played out, but there's a reason why street food is so popular, and well, that's because it's pretty awesome.

Here, we've rounded up some photos of well-known snacks like churros and more exotic ones like octopus balls (yes, you read that right). Have a look and let us know if you have any favorites!

Patriotic Gin and Citrus CocktailToast the night with a festive yet easy-to-pull-together gin and citrus soda cocktail. Accessorize it (or any cocktail, for that matter) with patriotic straws ($5) and ice cubes ($9) for a truly thematic tipple. Alternatively, serve up American beer or wine (bonus points for those with red or blue labeling). If you're feeling particularly adventurous, set out Hawaiian li-hing mui snacks, like li hing mui dried plums

Until recently, I assumed that Campari and its slightly milder cousin Aperol were love-it-or-hate-it aperitifs. But after cautiously trying a sip (and then another) of an expertly mixed Negroni while out to dinner one night, I discovered that, like many of the finer things in life, these bittersweet spirits are an acquired taste.
Since then, I've been sipping, swirling, and nibbling on everything and anything Italian, bittersweet, and glowingly bright red-orange. But tempted as I may be by riffs on the classic, I keep coming back to my first love: the negroni. Complex and with a heady perfume, this classic cocktail somehow seems appropriate year-round. Its bitterness helps to refresh the palate between bites of fatty braised meats come Fall and Winter, and when temperatures rise, it acts as internal air conditioning. A word of caution: this beverage is 100 percent alcohol, so pace yourself, lest you feel 100 percent awful come the next morning.
