All I have to buy are the croutons.

Thinking if you schmooze with him enough, he might even bring you the croutons, Addie!

I don't think so. I have grandchildren older than him. I'll take my chances and buy or make them myself.

I like all kinds of green salads. A favorite would be a nice bed of baby arugula, beef carpaccio, lots of shaved parm. The thin sliced (think microtome) beef (eye of round) gets marinaded, so no dressing required.
If you're gonna make a Key Lime pie, you have to use real Key Limes!

Thinly sliced red onions, homemade croutons (very garlicky), boiled, unsalted peanuts.
