You'd think with a choice of this many grocery stores where I live, I could find some lard. But no. I may try again today.

For pie crusts, of course.

It seems they nicely took the trans fats out of the crisco, but now the texture of my pie crust has changed. It rolls out beautifully. It looks lovely. It tastes blah. I'm going back to lard which is the ingredient I started out with oh so many years ago. If I can find it.

Meanwhile, one child home. Who has already beat me at gin rummy. And we had to kick him upstairs to bed as he was snoring in the chair before 8:30 p.m. I'm off to bake and maybe stitch today?

My cousin assures me that it's right next to the butter. Have you tried Wegmans?

Try ethnic supermarkets, hispanic especially.

I haven't tried Wegman's 'cause I was there last year the day before Thanksgiving and I don't need lard that badly!

And, yeah, Mike. Like I hadn't thought of that. I struck out at one yesterday. Need to go further afield than Reston.
