One lays documentary on sugar. This one is Australian. The director / presenter changed his own diet to one that had the same number of calories, and a "normal" amount of processed food containing hidden sugar. He gained lots of weight, developed liver disease and mood disorders, and his skin went bad. wow!

UK documentary / campaign about sugar.

One nice aspect about home cooking is we can add less or no sugar.

And I was just thinking about making an apple pie... Maybe make one and freeze half for later?

Irish documentary about sugar - in US I think we eat even more.

I tried it again, paying attention to the taste.  I don't think it's too sweet, but the watermelon part doesn't taste very good and has a slightly bitter aftertaste.

Of course, your millage may vary.  You may not taste any bitterness because it appears I'm more sensitive to bitter than most people.  Also, my tasting apparatus is 75 years old and not as sensitive as when young.

I think it is a little too sweet, but other than that, it's hard to say.

That's interesting, Spud.  I admit, if I saw Watermelon Roll in the store I'd be inclined to try it also.  I'm curious as to what you didn't like about it. 

I find many artificially flavored sherbets to be overly sweet for my tastes.

Yesterday, at WinCo foods, I saw something interesting, that I "had" to buy.  It's a Watermelon Roll.  Watermelon and Lemon Sherbet with chocolate chip seeds.  Not the best tasting thing I've eaten, but kind of a nice treat.

Daniel, cooking wouldn't be any fun if one didn't experiment every once and awhile. That goes for trying different varieties of garden veggies.

It's too early for pumpkin pie (in my opinion). I grew some. Actually, they were volunteer plants. I get a lot of volunteers--squash and tomatoes for sure.

Once in a while, Costco carries a roasted red pepper pesto that is out of this world, so good. I decided to make some from scratch. It wasn't even close to the Costco stuff. Oh well.

I decided that using starch to thicken pumpkin pie does not work as well as using evaporated milk. Made one today with evaporated milk. That was good.

Started picking a new variety of sweet corn, "Mirai". Whoa, way to sweet. Also watery instead of creamy. I won't be growing that one again,

So, food today was plus / minus. I made a loaf of bread for sandwiches, haven't tried it yet but probably good I think.

A very good article! I reminded myself to eat slower and with more attention.
