Good morning everyone

A lovely cool change came through last night so it has been lovely this morning, had the whole house open letting all the cool air come through...but it is going to heat up to 36c today and 41c tomorrow

Soon we are heading out to a hardware shop to buy a doorbell and a little 2 step ladder and just a look around too

I just got back from grocery shopping.

The health food store was out of whipping cream. It costs $5.99 for 500 ml (just over two cups), Ingredients: organic cream. It has a butterfat content of 40%.

So, I had to get the stuff from the supermarket: $4.99 for 500 ml, 35% butterfat, Ingredients: cream, milk, microcrystalline cellulose, carob bean gum, carboxymethyl cellulose, carrageenan, and polysorbate 80.

Good grief! When I buy whipping cream at my supermarket it is just cream. No additives. I have never looked at the fat content, but it has always whipped up nicely for me.

Okay you guys, have you actually looked at the ingredients on your cream?

I have. Right now I have half and half. It says, "Milk and cream with disodium phosphate (a mineral salt that stops cream from separating in hot liquids.)" I am a label reader. I buy heavy cream for whipping. And the label says "Cream". Nothing else. I have never bought light cream. Too heavy for me for coffee. And that is all I would use it for. Some stores carry 'whipping cream.' I don't know what that contains. I would never consider buying it. I do know it is lighter than heavy cream and heavier than light cream.

Having lived on a farm as a kid, I do know and remember what fresh foods taste like. No additives. It is one reason I cook from scratch.

Mine says "Milk, Cream" that's it and there are two different brands, one is Great Value from Walmart and the other Western Family.

Taxy, are you talking straight cream, or cream in a can? Just wondering.

On a totally different topic, I am smiling and doing the happy dance (not easy for a crippled up person like me ). I have my big clunky ergonomic keyboard back and can type properly again!

I have been trying Dad's slimline keyboard because the tray on my new computer desk is quite small and because it is an all glass desk it is difficult to put a different one on it. There isn't a lot of room for the mouse and keyboard. But I was mixing up the keys, nothing was where its "supposed to be" and my fingers were hurting more on it. I have my old faithful back and am a happy camper once again!
