This I’ve Learned

about yet another dentist appointment. It makes me think how much money I’ve spent on my teeth all these years. I wonder what all I could’ve bought with the bridges and crowns hidden in my mouth. It’s like my secret treasure. I’m just thankful my teeth aren’t like the stars. They come out every night.

Revive wilted lettuce by giving it a quick dip in hot water, then rinse in ice water that a little salt or sugar has been added. Shake and refrigerate.
Be sure lettuce leaves are dry before tossing. Dressing won’t stick to wet leaves.
Use fingers to tear lettuce into bite-size. A knife will cause edges to turn brown.
Use lettuce as a hot vegetable. Sauteed or stir-fried for a surprise side dish.
