Today's going to have to be a quick post. I'm looking at 20 heads of lettuce, 30 pounds of tomatoes and 15 pounds of onions... all of which have to be chopped tonight by me. Tomorrow's the big day. It's our towns tractor pull and I'm in charge of the concession stand for the 4th year. Luckily I got all the chili and taco meat cooked a few days ago. It will be a long day. I have to get it set up and going before noon. I will be there until the last tractor pulls... some years that's 2:00 AM. I will leave you with a wonderful lemon bar I found over at Bakerella. She's got a great blog and I have such fun looking at her wonderful desserts :)
