Salads and tea

I went to Hen House's salad bar with a coworker the other day during lunch hour. My coworker laughed at me because I grabbed the large plastic container, but, I only put a couple pieces of lettuce in it. So I confessed. I don't like eating lettuce in my salads.

Salads and lettuce are virtually synonymous, so I feel obligated to add a couple of pieces of lettuce to my salads even though I don't eat it. Now, crispy lettuce on a cheeseburger is different; it adds a little tasteless crrrunch to the bite. I suppose it adds a crunch to the salad as well, but why eat that when you can eat the cheese, black olives, raisins, and so on? Okay, maybe if you are carb-conscious, but even then, when I order lettuce wraps at Houlihans or PF Chang's I guarantee that 30 minutes later my stomach will begin to growl. And the cheapest way to fill up that tummy after eating a $9 plate of lettuce is by filling it either with free water or free refills of pop.

This brings me to another thought--I love tea. I love it. But sometimes, I don't know, it tastes sooooo...watered down. That's the best, and most ridiculous, way to describe it which is why I'm describing it that way. But boy, oh boy, I cannot wait to drink my watery tea tomorrow morning.

Lettuce in salads is OK, but load it up with all the other goodies, especially cheese and olives. I don't like lettuce on sandwiches, and always joke that "If God meant for us to put lettuce on sandwiches, he woulda made it flatter."

I was curious if you ever considered changing the structure of your blog?
Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it
better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having
1 or 2 pictures. Maybe you could space it out better?
