I'm sure some of you are questioning such a method, but I am here to tell you it's wonderful. If you like lettuce, and you appreciate smoky overtones, you will really enjoy this. Plus it's a fun and tasty way to get your greens; no pre-chopping required.
On another note, I'm dying to get our fridge (and dishwasher and washing machine). Only one more day; it's being delivered tomorrow. I'm feeling slightly "pioneer-ish" having to fetch my ice and other things from the shed, but a longtime Laura Ingalls wannabe, I would have never made it. As much as I want to think I would have loved to have lived back then, I'm nearly positive I would have failed miserably in Half Pint's eyes. I'm hoping this minor setback will re-remind me to be thankful for those little daily blessings that - in all reality - are huge.
Enjoy God's love this weekend!
