Did you watch any news this week? I did and I saw so many stories about the banning of transfats, how nobody should be eating them ever, etc.
it was rather alarming listening to them.
I think we eat more healthy food than unhealthy food, even so, our pantry had about 3 kinds of store bought cookies, chips, assorted crackers, assorted Helper mixes, Spam, Crisco shortening, microwave popcorn, stone canned soups, granola type bars, cereals.....
Guess what? I found ZERO products with transfats in our pantry.
Do any of you know of any specific foods that still contain transfats? besides the transfats that naturally are in meats? I am just wondering.
When I straightened the pantry, I found a nice assortment of nuts. I set them out on the counter, a sort of snack station, for my husband to get some extra protein while he continues to heal.
I did not make the patchwork placemat but I am fortunate to have 2 sets of them,
This set with the green borders belonged to my grandmother and I think she made them. I also have a set with red binding that was a wedding gift (33 years ago) from a very sweet honorary Aunt.
I have used both sets a lot and some of the bindings are getting worn though. But I am going to keep using them as I like them so much.
