It has an allure…

I don’t understand the allure of lettuce.

Except on a BLT — bacon, lettuce, and tomato.

I eat tons of it. Lettuce, lettuce, lettuce.

My mama told me to.

I just finished eating it on a BLT, because who would eat a BFT — bacon, field greens, and tomato?

I grew lettuce in containers this year. Two types — a romaine and a leaf lettuce.

I grew it, and I ate it.

Yes. I know.

Lettuce has some nutritional goodness. Lots of potassium, for one thing.


This requires further study thought.

My favorite way to eat lettuce is on a PBJ — peanut butter and jelly. It provides the crunch that you would get from potato chips, without the fat and salt… or the thrill of the fat and salt.

You? What’s your favorite way to consume the water-is-95-%-of-me lettuce?

Inquiring minds and all that.

What have I been doing?

I’m also taking Before You Hit Send, a workshop on self-editing taught by the savvy @angelajames. If I’m a survivor, I’ll let you know at the end of August.
