Salad should be eaten before the main course. Salad should be eaten with the main course to mix with the meal aiding in digestion.

After eating salty foods or the meal is somehow salty, then eat sweets to lessen the salt on your body? :D

Eat parsley after garlic to freshen your breath. It actually works! At least I think it works.

I have a friend who has an avocado ranch a mile from here. I hear the coyotes every night. Her ranch dog eats fallen avocados as an exclusive diet, and he's so fat he can hardly waddle. He always has green and black goo around his mouth.
If there's any left for the coyotes I'm sure they don't bury them, or Levi the dog would find them.

About kitchen wives tales...
When I married my husband, he'd cut the ends off of potatoes before baking them. I asked him why, and he said because Sally, his late wife did. He asked her why once, and she said because her mother did.
Well we still don't know why, and although I've only been married to him for three years, I cut the ends off of potatoes for baking too. It sounds goofy, but I swear the potatoes bake better.

ps......If I was ever called "the ole lady" or "the wife", he'd be kicked to the moon.

If you drop a knife on the floor, a man will come by for a visit!

I would think cutting the ends off would dry the potato out, but what do I know? I always wrap potatoes/sweet potatoes in tinfoil and put a splash of water inside to steam them. They are always soft and moist.

And I guess I don't really see what the big deal is about someone saying, "the wife". I say, "the boyfriend" all the time lol. I choose to belong to him, so it wouldn't offend me at all

In some cultures or societies terms like 'u be da man', and 'the old man' are or were not considered pejorative.
