Woo hoo!

My new bedroom has gorgeous new curtains: dark blue denim, with steel eyelet rings. Yay yay!

Who woulda thunk?!

So I was surfing the 'net, looking at random recipes because I am utterly in love with my new combination microwave/ convection oven/ grill... and aside from finding really delicious-sounding recipes for biscuits and pies and cakes and whatnot, guess what I found out?

Lard is healthier than butter.

It has a few more calories per tablespoon, but it has less saturated (bad) fat and more monounsaturated and polyunsaturated (good... well, better) fat. It also makes the flakiest biscuits and pie crusts. Woo hooo!!

It also makes the best fat for frying, or a half-half lard/butter mix, apparently. I'm so tempted to go out and buy a big tub of lard and make some southern fried chicken. Mmmm MMMM!!!

In other news: I have an exam tomorrow at 1pm, and I haven't started studying yet, and now it's nearly 10:45pm and I can't be bothered. ARGH. Having too much fun surfing cooking websites....
