flounder8a For a portion of today’s meal, I called upon Trader Joe’s, for Pacific Flounder with Crab Stuffing. Simply thaw and bake in a 375 (F) oven, 20 to 25 minutes. Absolutely delicious!

Wilted Lettuce~

Torn leaf lettuce to fill a 2.5 quart bowl

4 or 5 scallions, chopped

8 slices of bacon, fried and crumbled

3/4 cup cider vinegar, sweetened to taste

Bacon drippings

Fry and drain bacon. Allow drippings to cool. Add the sweetened vinegar. Bring to boil; lower heat, to simmer.

Add scallions and bacon to lettuce. Pour hot vinegar/drippings dressing over all. Cover to allow lettuce to wilt. Not exactly a healthy salad but oh so yummy!

If you have a garden, this is best with homegrown leaf lettuce. Oh my!!

Approximately 4 servings
