Why can't stores learn to put canned pumkin where it belongs? I finally had to call to see if they have any. It is with the baking supplies...

I've found it at other times with canned fruit. Same store.

Ohhh yes in general reading English isn't a problem at all and in some fields I will understand things better than in my native language.

We use subtitles here for foreign movies/shows rather than dubbing them and because the market here is so small majority of it is material from the US and UK. It's amazing how much can sink in this way. Kids catch on pretty quickly and speak fluent English before they start studying it.

I've decided to wait for the English one and get the E-book. I'll also save money.

Its so we bake a pumpkin pie! That IS what canned pumpkin is for, isn't it?

That reminds me: i want to open up a grocery store that caters to us low carb folk. Ill disguise it as something hip to lure in even the most primal of folk. Call it "Grok's" perhaps? Or "Steak & Egg Market"?

I have had to do a pumpkin search before. Some stores have trouble deciding what kind of product it is I guess.

When do you open Katie?

Then of course we always have some fruits where the vegetables are and some vegetables where the fruits are. It's actually just been few months since I learned bell peppers are fruits and not vegetables Should be easy to figure out though just by giving it a thought but I just always went by where they are located. I learned when I was a teen though that tomatoes are fruits, despite always being where the vegetables are.

lol... It used to be!

I found it! Better to have it in odd places in the store than to have another shortage.

I like Grok's... That would be my kind of store!

maximumdensity, do y'all have Kwik Trip in your state? They carry avocadoes. So do some Targets, though they're expensive. Woodman's grocery has them for the best price, but I think they're only in 2 states.

An avocado mint shake sounds fantastic. Do you have a specific recipe you use?

Half an avocado, 1/2 tsp mint extract, 1/2 tsp peppermint extract, 2 T equivalent sweetener, 1 cup or so milk of your choice (whole, half n half, unsweetened coconut milk, whatever), 3 to 4 ice cubes in the blender. If you have dark chocolate chips on hand, throw a few in there after you've blended it to a smooth consistency and pulse to break up the chips*. I haven't done that because I was out of chips at the time, but that's to kill a mint chip ice cream craving.

*not semi-sweet; they have too much sugar. Get Nestle dark chocolate chips; you'll recognize them because they are bigger morsels than the semi-sweet ones. Two of those pieces have less than 1 gram of carb.

That's awesome, glad you had fun.

I was actually traveling around in the past week because of Norwegians I was "guiding". We went to the blue lagoon and the golden circle.

So I've been cooking all evening. Before bed I want to put some bones in the crock pot for bone broth. Anyone have any tips???

I am going to do an egg fast or fat fast next week. Some bone broth should be good to have on hand.

I didn't get to that part, I had to choose and I chose to see the place where the continental plates were separating and Thingvellir. I'm kind of a geography/geology nerd so straddling the two continental plates was a biggie for me.

Ohhh that's cool. Žingvellir is a part of the golden circle though I've been there many times.

Walking between N-America and Euroasia is pretty cool

My little 9 year old niece is a "vegetarian". Not because she's against eating meat but because she's worried about all the fat (even if it's lean meat).

I think she gets it from my brothers girlfriend which I've multiple times heard saying "ewww fat" at the dinner table.

It breaks my heart to see her sticking with the side dishes, things like rice (which are her favorite food) and potatoes. Carbs aside I worry about her not getting enough nutrition. She never says no to candy, but it's like she actually fears fat.

My bro is too soft on her. When I was a kid you ate what was put on your plate.

Pumpkin is almost always in the baking aisle, but some stores move it seasonally- baking aisle for the holiday season -which in retail terms lasts from august until February- ant then with the fruit for the rest of the year. Some stores carry it in both places all of the time, and some don't carry it past the holiday season. I don't like that last kind of store....

Back when Michael Jackson was at the peak of his stardom, all the little 9 year olds refused to eat meat because "Michael" was a vegetarian. They grew out of it.

You're right to worry about Niece's nutrition. My sister is a lifelong vegetarian and she's in TERRIBLE shape, and that's an understatement. She's managed to get to age 75, but her health is pitiful. Pitiful.

I hope to be a healthy vegetarian. There has to be balance. And vegan is just no good in the long run. (I eat eggs and dairy, am addicted to dairy, and am NEVER going to be vegan).

There is always balance. Everybody has to find out what's right for them and their palate. I think you can be a healthy vegetarian if you pay attention to getting the right nutrients. Vegetarianism appeals to my spirituality and it definitely seems cleaner and purer than digesting animals, but for me, I don't thrive on it.

I was raised in a vegetarian home and didn't eat meat until I was 25. I still don't eat things like chicken legs and I NEVER gnaw on a pork chop bone. People can make a meal off what I leave on the bone, lol.

Oh, drumsticks are nasty to me. I am so aware it's muscle fiber. But chicken tenders tempt me; it's the breading I want.

I was a big meat eater as a child so it never really grossed me out.

Only thing that breaks me is if it has an actual face. One of our traditional Icelandic foods is a boiled sheep head. Yes you actually have the whole head on your plate, including eyes and everything. I've tried but couldn't eat more than one bite.
