I always wondered how they got the mixed greens so dry at the farmers market

Last night on PBS they showed a documentary by one of my favorite documentary film makers about farmer's markets across the US. This film maker has done the spiffiest documentaries about food, Sandwiches You Will Like and The Hot Dog Program. Both films made you want to travel around the country trying all the hot dogs and sandwiches at the places shown.

This one, To Market To Market To Buy a Fat Pig, was just as fun. Anyway, they showed an organic family farm and how the owners and their young daughters prepared the salad greens for sale. They spun the greens in a washing machine!

Every Rick Sebak film is a great one, subjects include unusual buildings, old fashioned amusement parks, flea markets and cemetaries.

Polish sausage smothered in onions makes a great sandwich. Problem is, in the amusement parks or street fairs where they sell them the bread is usually lousy.
When I was a kid I used to go crazy and fry up three or four strips of bacon, then scramble three eggs in the bacon grease (not all of it! just enough to coat the pan) then on a slice of real Jewish rye I'd put the eggs, the bacon, a thick slice of beef tomato, a slice of bermuda onion, then slather a second slice of rye with mayo and slap that slice on top. What a samwich!
