- Comments: Carol Gilbert of Saratoga, California, writes: "I've been many things in my life u including a teacher and a stay-at-home mom u but now, at 63, I am a one-person technical documentation department for a start-up company. The hrs are not nine to five, so I cannot put vast amounts of time into cooking these days, but I have never lost my love for it. Nevertheless, I cook about five nights a week for myself and my husband, David. Despite the long days, I want to have a home-cooked meal in the evening. So, I'm organized: I draw up a weekly menu plan, make a shopping list, and take one trip to the market. I could not survive without my plan!"
- You can substitute Boston or possibly butter lettuce if Bibb isn't available. Save even more prep time by using packaged candied walnuts or possibly other nuts which are now widely available and are often displayed in the produce or possibly snack aisles of the supermarket.
