Don't worry. It will still be there tomorrow. Unfortunately.

They like to leave it up to the company. The FDA likes to believe in the "honor system." They also believe in the Tooth Fairy, the Easter Bunny and Santa.
I have always thought the Canadians were more logical about these things and not caught up in the politics. We tend to get more caught up in things like defining pizza as a vegetable. I also believe that the Canadians have a better understanding of the idea that you need to pay for what you get. In the United states we tend to candy coat everything and assume it is going to be paid for by the other guy. As far as the Tooth Fairy, the Easter Bunny and Santa. I believe! I would vote for any of them if they run for President in 2012.

Retyping my post. The maintenance on the DC site started just as I was posting, so it was lost. Oh well.

I've just started my crockpot project. I sliced up onions for Slow cooker onion base using my new, cheap ($10) Walmart slicer. It did a GREAT job!

I'm keeping the crockpot on the floor near my hangout spot. It's not cluttering up the kitchen and it's keeping my feet warm.

You're not sitting their with your feet on the lid are you? ;^)

I just pulled the meat out of the oven. I've been smelling it since about 3:00AM, and now that I am downstairs... ooo-la-la. 208F, done.

How long did 'overnight' turn out to be.

KD is the official nickname for Kraft dinner - the kind that comes in the thin tall blue box with the straight macaronis and powdered cheddar cheese like product.

My overnight turned out to start about 9:30, then I turned off the oven at 5:10 this morning and pulled it out at 5:25.
No water evaporation either. I had a lid on it, but I still thought I would lose some water.

I've always considered mac and cheese to be junk food and avoided it. I had a little of it about a month ago and it convinced me to wait another 20 years before eating it again.

There must be 10 thousand abbreviations in use for various things. I don't think anyone knows them all. Most people learn the ones they come in contact with most often. Since I seldom eat KD, I missed it's abbreviation.

Sure, it's for tomorrow's PPPC, Arizona.
I am turning some of the meat into Carne Seca and part will be left for Apache Burros. The carne seca calls for marinating overnight, so after I pick up some green salsa today, I'll start marinating it.
