Hi friends, and welcome to Tumbleweed Tidings. I am so glad you are here! I don’t know about you, but my husband and I love a good Caesar salad. For most of my life, there was one kind of lettuce and that was iceberg. Life was simple, and the iceberg lettuce...

Before I jump into today’s blog, you will notice in many of the pictures, I had a lovely assistant today; my 15 year old granddaughter Cassidy. She is homeschooling this semester due to COVID, so once her work was done the other day, she was able to help with...
