YOU ARE STILL A WEED TO ME
The next holiday is “DANDELION DAY” it’s always been just a weed to me but I know it is a favorite kind of salad for many. For you who want to try a dandelion salad it is recommended to pick the greens before the flower bloom; otherwise they acquire a bitter taste. Secondly do not eat the dandelion greens from a yard that has been sprayed with chemicals. Tell the little ones that play outside that some flowers are safe to eat and others are not. You could probably find some good dandelion salad recipes on the web if you are interested. To Joey Z the Dandelion will always be a weed.
Here is a better holiday to celebrate “NATIONAL BLT MONTH.” BLT that great bacon, lettuce and tomato sandwich. I haven’t had a BLT in years and use to love the double decker ones served with French fries or potato chips. I remember mostly eating them in diners or in my younger years at the lunch counters of Woolworth’s Five and Dime. Well tomorrow is Friday but I leave you with good wishes for a great evening. Stay healthy and careful out there.
