A to Z Challenge- I

I is for Ita Palm and Iceberg Lettuce or I'm stumped.

Ita Palm
I havent the first idea what an Ita Palm is. I've never even seen one, much less eaten one. But its the only fruit I could find that begins with the letter I. Ita is the palm that palm wine is made from, evidently.

Here's a link to a wiki on it http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mauritia_flexuosa

And here's a link to The Palm Wine Drinkard by Amos Tutuola (which is the first book I ever read that belonged to my husband.

Iceberg Lettuce.
Nobody nowadays has anything nice to say about iceberg lettuce. Its got limited to no nutritional value, limited to no flavor: just generally not much going for it. Still, I do like that ultimate American Steakhouse salad-  a head of iceberg, cut into wedges, drizzled with blue cheese dressing sometimes topped with cubes of fresh tomato and bacon bits. Yum!


  1. You just described my salad tonight! You just forgot the red onion. Or did it have any? Maybe I'm confusing the components of the many salads I've had lately.

    Was going to leave my hyperlink but that would be advertising my blog?

  2. I don't think I've ever had iceberg lettuce, but now I want to!

  3. I'm ok with links to other blogs, I just went through a period of getting really bizarre ads for discount pharma... v. frustrating.


No advertising for your weird cookbook please...or sex enhancement drugs...just no advertising at all...
