How to Cut Romaine Lettuce (Video Tutorial) + Our First Date

Here’s a quick video tutorial on how to cut romaine lettuce – go figure, there’s a proper way! You’ll waste less lettuce and probably stop buying the bagged lettuce because it’s so easy!
My husband, Vadim taught me this method. He worked in Chilis restaurant for 5 years way back when we were dating. Actually the first place he took me out was Chilis. Here’s the scene. I was 15…
I was 15, my 14 year old sister Anna was tagging along, and my older man (who was a whopping 19 at the time) took us out to Chilis and bought us lunch I think he wanted to show off his new girlfriend from Idaho to his friends and trust me I was happy as a clam to have an older hunk from California.
Here’s a picture from the dating scrapbook that I created when I was about 16. I love how completely dorky and innocent this was, i.e. “hot hot hot.” Go on and laugh. Yeah I used stickers and calendar cutouts in my scrapbooks and I am not ashamed (ok, maybe a little bit). Are you totally surprised that I never continued in scrapbooking? Anyway, I hope you’re chuckling.
After lunch, the “date” continued as Anna chaperoned us to the park. Anna, I’m so sorry for sharing this photo of you. I laughed until my pregnant belly ached when I was looking at it.
Your shorts are stellar and the best part is, you were borrowing them from me! Even better, my boyfriend was wearing socks with sandals. Those were simpler times. lol. Ouch, my belly.
