Subject: RE: BS: Recipes - what are we eating?
We are still in the renovation stage, with small appliances on top of the filing cabinet.

Yesterday we returned to childhood. In the old days, all seven of us would go to the grocery store on Saturday and stock up for the week. Back at home, we all helped put the food away. Then we would have hamburgers and potato chips for a casual dinner after all that hard work. There would be a vegetable or a salad, too.

We didn't have much money, but we did have the full array of condiments which an American has the right to expect: ketchup, mustard, pickle relish and onions, either raw or fried. Buns were toasted in a 250-degree oven, a gourmet touch.

The idea of putting lettuce and tomato on a hamburger came later.
I don't care for it - too squishy. When a restaurant serves me that, I turn the lettuce and tomato into a small, surreptitious salad.
So yesterday we had hamburgers, potato chips (the smallest package), asparagus, avocado and strawberries.
