Be NICE, now!

I just remember her labored breathing coming through the microphone and out of my TV.

Yes but they changed it. No more flaky pie crust, the crust has a strange flavor and a softer texture like a store bought pie. Not worth all the trouble anymore.

ccc you are right,,,need some fat for flavor!!

the nutritional nellies, scared all the soccer moms 20 years ago, that meat/fat was bad, bad, bad,

although, i have to say, with the most recent studies saying meat isnt as bad as they pegged it to be (fresh meats)
im encouraged to see more younger folks on a high protein , low carb diet- similar to atkins years ago, but not as strict.
and i think when the younger generation are finally on their own,,they are eating what they like,,,,and im also seeing young women step up and ask for fresh steaks,,, young girls, for a couple decades were the ewww & ick crowd, proudly saying they dont eat meat- maybe this is rebellion,,

when the nutritional nellies have targeted such a wide variety of foods that will kill you,,,alot of folks throw up their hands and say., i may as well eat what i enjoy,,it sounds like everything is going to kill us..

also, two new employees, where i work said this last week-they work in a grocery store

omg, i never knew there was sooooo much good food , i see something new everyday i want to try!!
"my family was so strict on what we ate" and they moralised/preached so much, that now that im on my own, i want to try all these things i couldnt have, and one of these foods is meats, omg i had a cheeseburger last night that was one of the best things i ever ate" tomorrow night im having a steak"

I usually only cook fatty (marbled) beef, but there is one way to make lean beef taste good, and that is low-temp baking. Take a roast and salt, pepper it heavily (optional, but it tastes great). Now simply pop it in the oven at 185f for a few hours, maybe 3-5 depending on the size. Slice it 1/4" for the dinner plate, and shave it for sandwiches.

That's basically how they make deli roast beef which is also brined.

Some people are afraid of low temp baking, but it's quite safe as long as you roast it for several hours so that the core temp is 170 or higher.

They changed the oils they use to make it, and nearly eliminated the trans fats.

I always make my pie crusts with lard, though, and wouldn't buy Crisco on a bet. Yuck. So I have no dog in this fight.

Also, I don't see either of those around much.

Another thing I remember in those little glass jars of cheese spread made by Kraft. You could use them as juice glasses afterwards. My favorite had pimiento in it. I liked it on Triscuits or celery sticks.
Kraft still makes Old English Cheese spread in those little jars. I use it to make a favorite appetizer, Shrimp Puffs.

I remember this and a snow cone machine.

Some other things that I am not sure if they are still around
Planters cheese balls
Pb Maxx it was a cookie/candy
Twix with regular cookie and peanut butter
Bubble tape and Big League Chew gum
Ring pops
Suddenly Smore's which were microwavable and pre made.
One an awhile for breakfast my mom would take me to Mcdonald's and they had these cinnamon Danish that I liked.


I had the worst diet growing up. Thank goodness for major growth spurts.
