What to Cook for Dinner?
I’m really excited about the lettuce deal I found this week. I went to shop at Everyday Deals Extreme Discount not knowing how much produce would be available. Since it’s a discount grocery store it’s hit or miss whether or not they will have good produce in or not. As I was picking up 4 heads of Romaine lettuce to purchase I looked up and saw a 10 pound box of Romain lettuce for $1. I thought it was heads of lettuce so I scooped it up and into the cart it went. After all lettuce for $.1o a pound I was not going to pass it up.
When I got home I realized the lettuce was separated out into leaves and packed into this box. I’m sure I could have figured it out in the store too had I taken the time to really read the box. 🙂 It ended up being a lot of lettuce so I packed up what I thought we could eat over the next week into zipper bags and then gave the rest away to the neighbors. So all of our neighbors ended up with lettuce.
