Sounds really good, Shanny! Some of the 'cheat' recipes from the past may make it back in as regular meals?
Exactly! lol! My smoked oyster dip which I practically live on lately, has been popular with the family for years - my sister found it somewhere right after she got married in 1972. It took me all this time to realize what a great low-carb recipe it is. Someday I gotta sit down & really go through my recipes . . . but 45 years' worth of recipes seems a lotta hard work right now.
Why am I telling YOU this? You prob'ly have more years accumulated than I have! ;)

Ah, you remember my age! :) We had some good ones until 'they' told us fats were so bad for us. I'm just glad that not everyone believed them and so we have some good ingredients available for us....they survived the war!
