LOL. I'm scrolling down through the blog and see "applesauce muffins." My first thought?

Oh wow, I make those...

Then I saw my name.

LOL. I'm officially losing it. But after 14 hours at the keyboard yesterday (and over 12,000 words written), I'm trying to tell myself it's normal.

Does anyone know what solid vegetable shortning is anymore? My mom used to have lard. Made the best pie crusts, flaky and tender. But you have to get past the idea of lard.
