RE: Thanksgiving Salad
I also had a salad, but that is common for me with most any meal. I grew up in a predominatly Italian neighborhood where almost every meal was a feast. They always had a first course, could have been salad or soup or a pasta dish.
I worked hard for my salad this year. Most of the ingreadiants were from what was left of my garden. Tomatos, lettuce, onions, and raddihes, I had to buy the cukes. I was determined to have fresh tomatos, not the best of the season but still tastey. Well worth the effort and enough for my neighbours table as well, he helped with this project. Living north of Boston it wasn't an easy feat, but paid off. Chow Jim
