I usually buy Bell and Evans and you can get 3 pounders readily. Harder to find big B&E

About Atkins...Once upon a time I was a bit heavy. I wasn't fat but I was heavier than I should have been. A friend of mine was doing Atkins so I decided to try it. I lost the weight. It wasn't painful. I never got hungry. It did take me a while to loose my craving for sweets but I got over it.

Now I eat whatever I want including the occasional imported chocolate bar and too much beer. I maintain a healthy weight without even trying. I have nothing bad to say about Dr. Atkins.

I'm also not crazy about a trend to "upscale" basic foods.

It's a hot dog. Don't try to make it something it's not. No Kobe beef, truffles, gold leaf, etc. Just a plain old dog on a bun with some basic toppings.

The same goes for burgers. Just read an article about grinding up dry aged ribeye and strip steaks for burgers. Really??? If I have dry aged ribeye, I having steak for dinner.

Amen! Turning premium beef into hamburger is almost criminal.

Currently, I'm seeing a glut of articles/recipes with chickpeas, turmeric, pumpkin spice (every year).

The food industry is going way overboard to attract our attention.

My pet peeve is 'stump flung' chitlins...everybody knows 'creek runs' are better!!!


5+ pound fryers drive me nuts!!! I have a found an independent that sells a brand where a 4 pounder is huge!! Bought a couple the other day in the 2.5 pound range. When I make the trip I buy 6 minimum. Have bought a dozen.

This week our local Penn Dutch has twin packs of fryers on sale for .59 per pound. These average about 3 pounds each. Time to feed the deep freezer!

Finding a coupon for an item that you like to have in the house, but the coupon says you have to buy multiples instead of just the one you want.

Applebeer, been drinking dutch and Belgian apple beers for 20 years now, didt know that was fad and I adore Apfelkorn too.
And feta cheese and water melon salad, done right is amazing, you need a not too sweet watermelon, Greek feta, black pepper and mint, lovely on a hot day. I been eating that for also 20 years.

The trend I dont like is chia and flax seed, people use chia like a magic fix and add so much that they actually eat more calories then they need and also crushed flax seed are poisonous.

Apple beer is pretty new here. DH detests any kind of fruit beer. Contradiction in terms to him

Flax meal is poisonous? That must be news to the gluten-free eaters.
