    AS someone who has been trying to watch sat fats for a long time to keep ridiculous cholesterol readings in check and watching carbs to stave off type two diabetes which they tell me I'm at risk for, those potatoes fried in bacon grease sound like heaven to me!! (greasy or not).

    greta,
    lard is less viscous at frying temperature than shortening and oils and drains from the food it has fried before becoming congealed. actually less fat remains in the fried food......i think?

    I don't know about all that, but I KNOW that it makes stuff taste a whole3 lot better.
    I used to love to eat at grammas. Her pies, baked goods, french fries etc were so good. When I asked her why she replied with one word answer. LARD!!

    I photograph the newly designated naval aviators receiving their wings at NAS Corpus Christi ever couple of weeks or so. It is traditional for the married students to present their spouses with flowers at a point during the ceremony. Of course we on occasion have married female students and they often give their spouses liquor, but a few wingings ago one husband received a bouquet of what I thought were brown roses. On further inspection, they were BACON roses. By the end of the ceremony, the husband had eaten about half the "flowers".

    My sister had been knocked up and married off by 17. Her husband was very abusive and she had to leave or she likely would have been killed. It was definitely coming to that. She used state assistance to get her self on her feet. She finished her education and got work and got off assistance when she was able to. She is now a Sargent with the Sheriffs Dept. I am very proud of her. There is alot of abuse in the system, but it is also helping alot of people. I don't think enough is said about the cases where it works out for the best.

    And that's the way it is supposed to work. You should be proud of your sister's ability to pull herself up like that. I have no problem with people who USE the system. It is folks who abuse it that anger me. People are fallible and some need help sometimes. To some extent that is why I have suggested that people on assistance should be required to take some classes on how to buy food, manage expenses, etc., and then forced to make good purchasing decisions.

    Never had either of those, but peanut-butter and banana was a staple along with plain old bread and butter, and PB&J. Not for economic reasons as far as I know, more like ease of production.
