We went out to eat tonight (a rarity for rationing year).

I had a salad.

A nice, crispy, juicy, green, leafy salad.

With cucumbers.

And a small, decent-tasting tomato.

Compared to this, that "heaven" label for last night's SPAM is just crazy talk.

Goodness, how I miss lettuce!

  1. Thanks for your comment on my rationing blog, Michelle. I've just been looking through your blog and it's really impressive and comprehensive. We found the experience really interesting and challenging, so I hope you and you're family are having the same! I had to laugh at your comment about missing something as simple as lettuce... I was craving fresh fruit like crazy by the end of our month! Good luck.
