Hey! Hey! I still fry my chicken and pork chops in Crisco!
There's just so much I'll give up to be healthy!
I started this thread when I got home from a potluck dinner tonight but had to stop long enough to watch Desperate Housewives and Brothers and Sisters. Now that I had time to finish it, I dug out my new big can from Sam's and it is one of the new ones. The one I have opened is an old one. Now I am afraid to make icing again. I have never used a generic brand for my icing because I was afraid it wouldn't taste good or work as well. May have to try it.
By the way, I remember ice milk. We always used it in my mom's cafe to make milkshakes as it whipped up better than ice cream for shakes. Just thought I'd throw that in.
Heck this thread has had more subjects than I've read in all the other threads combined today.
