There she is. Isn't she a beauty?
I also have a live butter lettuce still attached to its root, which I didn't take a picture of because the woman at the Farmers' Market packed the lettuce into "its own ecosystem" (i.e. an opaque plastic bag which I cannot open until right before serving).
I love butter lettuce. ^__^
So: Christmas dinner will have butternut squash and butter lettuce (I see a trend here...), along with freshly-baked flaxseed bread and locally-made Vermeer cheese to eat it with; also apples, and the Alaskan salmon my parents are bringing.
Doesn't that sound delicious?
