Four heads of lettuce

When I took out my veggie subscription, I knew this day would come, and I dreaded it.

The dreaded day came yesterday. Lettuce. I received no less than four heads of lettuce in my veggie bag. Not one, not two, not even three, but four big heads of lettuce. And I could have sworn they were grinning at me. Daring me to touch them.

Well, touch them I did!

I may hate lettuce, but I’m not afraid to chop those heads. Serves them right, too.

But at the same time, I did have a problem. How on earth was I going to eat those appalling leafy monsters without wanting to puke choking on them? How was I going to make DD-14 eat them?

Of course I could have fed some to the rabbit, but honestly, four heads of lettuce is really a bit much for just one little Netherland Dwarf.

So I had to get creative.

Yesterday I made a lettuce stir-fry, which tasted surprisingly good. In fact, it was so good, I forgot to take a picture so I won’t be able to post the recipe. Oh well.

Today I got really brave and chopped up my two heads of oak leaf lettuce. I just knew what to do with them: I’d make a lettuce soup. Yes, you read that right: Lettuce soup. And guess what?

It was delicious!

I’ll share the recipe tomorrow.

    I'd have to adjust the recipe a little, but that sounds like a good idea. Thank you, Tara.

    What about an Asian inspired lettuce wrap? http://www.food.com/recipe/p-f-changs-chicken-lettuce-wraps-15865 Or a donation to a needy neighbor???
