  1. Wow I have never had it with boiled eggs in it!! Sounds good.

    I can never hear about wilted lettuce without laughing out loud. My Morgan's other grandmother told us the story of when she and her husband first married and her new husband told her that his favorite food was wilted lettuce that his mother made for him. Betty decided that she was going to please her new husband and went to the store and bought a head of iceberg lettuce and came home boiled some water and poured over it and served it to him!!!!! Hahahahaha!! She said he choked it down and then he told her to please ask his mom how how to make real wilted lettuce!!!
