See, the bagged lettuces just leave me cold. I like my lettuce freshly chopped, not dried out and brown. Oh, I’ve used the bagged lettuces many times, but I always go back to fresh heads. That’s the only way for me. Freshly rinsed and chopped, with a few spins around and you have some great looking, nearly dry lettuce all read for a pretty salad bowl.
My usual choice is to mix romaine with red leaf, although there are many great lettuces out there. I love the spring mix too, as well as arugula. So, how about you? Do you used bagged lettuce or do you spin your own? You know the bagged lettuce is much more expensive, don’t you? And heads of lettuce will last SO much longer in the vegetable bin. That’s a known fact. I know that one for sure.
Green, leafy lettuce is good for you.
So, go and eat some salad! And get yourself a spinner if you don’t have one. I promise, you’ll love it! Oh, favorite store salad dressings for me are Ken’s. I love their Lite versions and the Balsamic Vinaigrette is probably my favorite, along with the Olive Oil Lite. The Creamy Parmesan is great too for a creamy dressing.
This week I’ll be a busy girl, as I’m working on a job with my new designer friend for 3 days, so I’m very excited about that. I think it’s going to be a fun project. And I have a light blue guestbath that I’m going to repaint this week with a color called Wedgewood Gray. It’s been 2 shades of blue already and I’m still not happy with it, so I’m going for #3. Wish me luck! I like to do these things while my hubby is out of town so I won’t have to hear the question “Why are you painting that for the 3rd time?” Understand??
I’m planning to head back to Florida next week too, so hopefully Kim and I will have more adventures to share.
