WILL ANACOANA MAKE ME THE KING OF ROMAINE?? LOL

Sunday, July 14, 2013


In 1964 I worked at the New York World's Fair in the Gas Pavillion where we cooked everything tableside on a gas cart and made fresh salads. I became a pro at making Caesar salad from scratch and many guests asked for me just for that. It would also help me get hired to work at the 5 star 4 Seasons restaurant in Manhattan.

On July 5th Anacoana posted a multi subject blog which had pictures of growing Romaine lettuce in the house and it rang a bell in my head (well aside from the many other noises I hear there!) I googled it and it was as easy as it looked. This is the blog http://www.blogster.com/anacoa

I usually buy 2 packages of Romaine every week--it is known as one of the healthiest food in the world due to its nutriental value plus the texture of the leaves adds a crisp bite to each taste. (For more information go to http://www.whfoods.com/genpage

Well I looked at the package, looked at the 3 tall heads (?) and decided why not after I made a sald one evening. After a week of eating Romaine lettuce I have 6 heads growing around the kitchen--I have never learned moderation!!! I am going to wait a couple of weeks and see how these turn out and will let you know.

With turnips and beets (hopefully) growing on the walkway and Romaine lettuce in the kitchen I may open my own vegetable stand!!!! LOL

    I live in a basement apartment so don't get much sunlight. I can't even have plants and I love house plants.

    Enjoy the fruits of your labors!!

    Interesting site! I grow lettuce in containers during the summer. I'd love to try this during the winter! Thanks for sharing.
