More yummies!

Yesterday was the sort of day in which I try to get as much cooking done as possible, an effort which yielded the duck-fat french fries pictured above and the chicken pot pie pictured below. The fries weren't as crispy as I'd have liked; I was inspired by this recipe, but didn't follow it (I should have). Still, the duck fat is a great high-temperature frying fat and it didn't lend as much of a duck flavour to the final result as I would have thought it would — I'd use it again. As for the pie, it could have used a bit more salt in the filling, but I wanted to keep things low-sodium. Parents are told to keep baby's "table food" relatively unsalted. Kara seems to approve, as evinced by the fact that she ate most of a slice for dinner tonight.

I grew up in a home that was virtually salt-free because of my Mom's high blood pressure.

I found that food iteself tastes very good - and quickly acclimatized to the lower sodium versions of treasured meals.

It's actually now as an adult that I find many foods much too salty - where others disagree.
