Two of us went to the grocery and we, collectively and individually, forgot to get the lettuce. It's been in the eighties here--WE WANT COLD SALAD!
And, you know, golly-gosh forbid that we should make a special trip to get some. Them mules will only hitch up to the buckboard a certain number of times a week. Them mules is unionized.
ANYWAY, I had some canned peas, and I had some old church recipe books, and I had my imagination, so I made this salad. If you don't eat meat, or specifically don't eat pork, leave the bacon bits out or substitute fake ones made from turkey or chemistry or something.
We both liked it, and it hit the spot that wanted some cold salad in it.
Today is grocery day, and what do you bet we remember the lettuce?
Today is also the last Tuesday of May, so it's the last Tuesday this year I'll write and post a free short story at my blog. Today's is "The Dessert that Failed".
