    vitamin D has been added to milk for ages, in making the decision to do so, they decided it was a product that nearly everyone uses so a good base.
    What a funny old world we've created.

    You also have to watch out for coconut oil. There is cheap stuff and expensive stuff. Coconut oil should be raw, not refined. The raw stuff is shelf stable, and is better than the refined.

We made the bed and we have to live with our deeds.
    It is no ones fault but ours that CA is running out of water.
    I do not have any affiliation with the company other that it being a good product that I like.

    Good to know!
    My son is actually talking about moving to CA. We live in Ohio, the area called The Black Swamp.
    Moving from one extreme to the other. He hasn't moved yet, maybe he's rethinking all this
    You know that feeling when you've finished all your quilting projects and your studio is perfectly clean???? Me neither.

    It's not how fast you sew, it's how well you sew fast! Wait, I think that's supposed to be MOW!

    This is scary for us because my daughter has life threatening nut allergies and some of the companies are rumored to be adding nut based oils to their olive oils. We've been using Philipo Berio who told me theirs is pure 100% olive oil but I'm going to switch to California Olive Ranch. If you email them with questions (I had to ask about allergens) they will send you recipes and coupons. I got three $1 off coupons.

    what you think is "honey" in the dollar store is "honey flavored syrup" - gotta read the label. Real local honey is more and more expensive. Oh, well, I did not need the calories anyway...
