Yesterday I baked and pureed the pumpkins from Halloween which gave me enough puree to make 6 pumpkin pies….considering I only spent $1.00 on the pumpkins, this was pretty basic frugallity. I also roasted the seeds, an added treat and healthy for you too!
In another of my efforts to not eat chemical laden foods I have also been really trying to avoid anything that has GMO ingredients and came across a Non-GMO Shopping Guide. I have known of the possible GMO’s in a lot of our foods, but once I read the list it really made me more aware and thoroughly disgusted. Who would think that Baking Powder would contain GMO’s. This was just one of the eye opening discoveries that was on this list. If you would be interested in finding out more about the potential dangers of GMO’s here is the site: http://www.responsibletechnology.org/GMFree/Home/index.cfm
Next after reading another blog that I follow I stumbled across the following site and actually entered into the contest, which I would truly love to win. I have been wanting to render my own lard, but have not done this yet.
Kelly the Kitchen Kop is promoting a give-away from U.S. Wellness Meats for a huge bucket of rendered tallow.
This is a healthy fat for deep frying and the secret to amazingly flaky pie crusts.
