L is for ...

L is for...LETTUCE
Wilted that is. We have been
enjoying the lettuce from our
garden. Salads Yum-O.
A couple of years ago
Ken wanted Wilted Lettuce
like he had as a child. Off
to the internet I went. Lucky
for me a Mary Jones posted
just THE recipe.
I will share it with you. Bear
with me if Blogger posts it weird.
**Wilted Lettuce Salad**
~5 slices of bacon
~2 T red wine vinegar
~1 T lemon juice
~1 tsp white sugar
~1/2 tsp ground black pepper
~1 head leaf lettuce-rinsed,
dried and torn into bite size
pieces.
~6 green onions with tops,
thinly sliced.
**************
1. Cook bacon in a skillet. Cook over
med-high heat until evenly brown.
Remove from skillet, crumble and
set aside.
2. To the bacon drippings, add the
vinegar, lemon juice, sugar and
pepper. Stir over med heat until
hot.
3. In a large bowl, combine lettuce
and grren onions. Add the warm

  3. We use to just pour the hot bacon grease over them when I was growing up, may sound awful to some but it sure was good then....
