O, hay!  I found some food!  I was digging around in the freezer, looking for a bag of cranberries, and I found some containers of split pea with ham & barley soup that I made in March, and then froze.  I thawed some, and it tastes better than it did when I first made it.  Yayyyy! 

I cooked a pot of brown rice w/sunflower seeds, mixed the two, and I think I have enough to last till I get my next Social InSecurity deposit in 2 weeks.

I hope.

Joan, I had to look up Cerberus as well to understand Chris' comment.  What an image!

I quit using margarine. Now it is either butter or olive oil. I like dipping crusty bread in good quality olive oil.

I just noticed Joan's article "the color barrier".  It says about the same thing as mine.

I can remember my mother mixing the color into the white stuff and was fascinated by the color change.

It may be because I was raised on the stuff that I still prefer the taste of margarine over butter.

I also remember the white margarine with the yellow coloring packet that was called oleomargarine or oleo.

I found an article that said it was the dairy industry that got colored margarine outlawed.  Federal and state laws ranged from banning margarine entirely to mandating it be colored black.  The courts shot-down the most egregious of those laws, but the ones that remained did a lot of damage.  The last law was in America's Dairyland state, Wisconsin, where it was repealed in 1967:

Joan, love that old magazine drawing! Wasn't margarine advertized and promoted to be a "healthy" alternative to "bad" butter? Now the reverse is thought to be true. I use unsalted butter in all my recipes.

Thanks for the margerine story! Must have been good business for Jurgens; the old company is now part of Unilever.

I don't know what a Cerberus is. 

OH! My Gosh! That is a terrible image. Whew! and all the condiments were "scraped thin".
