Food foliage

I would like to propose a toast, a shout-out, yea even a 'what-what' on behalf of the lettuce from In 'N Out Burger.  Who's with me?

Let's be honest.  Lettuce on a burger is usually a sort of filler, particularly when it comes in the form of a mit-full of limp, warm shreds slapped on by some yahoo in multi-colored fast food polo shirt and plastic gloves.

Enter lettuce from In 'N' Out.  An entire leaf, first of all, and delicious.  Cold and crisp next to the warm, juicy, cheese-covered beef... mmm.

 (I haven't had lunch.  And, come to think of it, I missed breakfast, too.)

At this time of Thanksgiving, I would like to express gratitude to the individual who decided it was finally time for my fine state to be granted a couple of In 'N Out locations.  What a bountiful harvest.
