Green Grows the Lettuce

I realized I haven't made a food post in quite some time, so here is one. Hub did the Sunday shopping today, while I stayed home and sorted and moved art supplies around. Besides supplies for dinner and the coming week, he brought home this totally beautiful bunch of lettuce. I know most people don't get this excited about greens, but I sure do. We love salad around here, and eat a lot of it. So I really like to use the best ingredients I can get my hands on. That usually means the Farmers Market, but haven't been able to get there in awhile. No, this came from the grocer, the plain old grocer. I did not have to toss ONE leaf or morsel. So along with our petite steak and baked sweet potato, tonite we dine on a huge green salad, with all kinds of nuts, olives, some bits of Asiago cheese, and vinagrette. I could just bury my face in the lettuce and be perfectly happy. Hub needs the steak and potato.
Look, it fills the entire sink.

After our steak dinner, we'll settle in to watch the Academy Awards. Every year I say I am not going to waste time with these, since they seem to go on forever. But I do like to see what ridiculous costumes people decide to put on, so that is the fun part for me. I've only seen a couple of the movies that are up for awards so I don't really care who wins what.

  1. I'm the same way about some foods! I can get completely carried away with beautiful, fresh veggies.

    I was glad that Jeff Bridges won, and also Sandra Bullock....just because I like them!
