I ran to the grocery store yesterday and since I'm trying to eat healthier. I went over to the lettuce. Now I'm not very creative with my lettuce so I thought for once I would look around. I spied a package of Living Butter Lettuce.
The produce guy and a lady (whom I am sure wanted the Living Butter Lettuce I had in my hand as it was the very last one) said this lettuce was wonderful. This stuff is a bit pricey, but I wasn't going to put it down just yet figuring if I did the lady who was standing in wait would snatch it up as quick as a wink. So I talked a bit more with lettuce in hand to the produce guy. I thought what the heck, I would try this pricey funny looking lettuce. So that is what we had for dinner as a side dish along with sauteed asparagus. I will definitely buy this lettuce again. It is good and tasty.
It's living because it has roots. The produce guy said he put his in a pot in his kitchen window and the lettuce continued to grow. He told me it may not always do that but he thinks he just got lucky. Hmmm...I just may have to try that especially at the price it was.
