Science agrees: Mayonnaise is disgusting

Home-made mayonnaise is great; store-bought mayonnaise contains way too many strange ingredients. Along with most store-bought condiments. Look for things with fewer ingredients.

My favorite label of all time reads "Ingredient: pumpkin" Note, no "s". (It's Oconamowoc pumpkin for pies, by the way.)

Y'know, the day after Halloween, pumpkins are outrageously cheap. It's no trouble at all to buy a couple, roast the seeds, bake the flesh, and freeze as much delicious pumpkin puree as anyone could want in single-pie-sized tupperware. I might still have some frozen from last year; one big pumpkin goes a long way.

When I make pumpkin pie, I blend all the ingredients in the blender before pouring it into the crust - it bakes up just like silk, mmmm. LOL, I confess I buy store-bought frozen pie crusts rather than making my own - those things have changed my life. ^^

"Y'know, the day after Halloween, pumpkins are outrageously cheap."

This goes contrary to my experience. The day after Halloween, even if there had been big bins of unsold pumpkins in stores the previous day, on November 1st there is nary a pumpkin to be found, neither cheap nor dear. Perhaps they all turn into coaches at midnight.

Really? Maybe go on Halloween then, before the lions and tigers get them all:
