They say necessity is the mother of invention.
This is one of those proverbs that has so much truth to it, even in everyday living. How many of us have fashioned a tool out of some object that was never meant to be used in the new manner we used it? (I’ve been known to use chewing gum to repair a sandal, more than once!)
Well, my daughter wanted a salad the other day and we were short of many salad ingredients, including lettuce. So she got creative and used what was in the fridge and I must say, it was really good!
