You are very welcome. Not things we want to really know, sorta, right? Wink  argghh

Maybe we should start a topic about this for those who might be interested. It's kind of a yawner for those aren't sodium restricted .....

Been doing this for over 5 years. Stinks it does LOL.

If common sense were truly common, wouldn't there be more evidence of it?

That really is a good site.  Thanks from me too!  I also watch sodium content, read labels and am careful in cooking because of the dietary needs of my dad.  I'm to the point that most 'normal' foods are pretty overwhelming really.  Probably just as well, no one needs the kind of salt most americans eat.

I really, really, REALLY wish that manufacturers wouldn't load their foods with salt!  Salt is a necessity but most of us would get what is required by our bodies without the pounds of added salt that food manufacturers seem to think we need.

Actually, they do it on purpose.  They use foods that we'd pitch to create what they sell to us.  Because they use subpar foods, they have to add salt to make it palatable and to addict us to what they're selling.   Overly salty food is an acquired taste as is over sugared food. 

If we prepare foods from scratch, do our own canning, freezing, drying and baking, we'll be serving our loved ones (and ourselves) vastly superior food that we KNOW is good food.  If we shop at farmer's markets, buy in-season produce, take advantage of wild-killed meats, we know that we're not serving hormones, antibiotics, or other crap to our families.

I could go on for hours about this.  One of the many reasons I love this forum and this website is that it's about real food, real living, and real people.

I agree Maud, after the news yesterday stating that 62% of chicken tested in grocery stores had samonella, I am beginning to fear meats from chain stores.  We have started going to a local slaughter house who has a retail meat counter.  It's very scary!!

Don't cry because it's over—smile because it happened!

Leah there are some good recipes on this site and I also recommend the "Fix it and Forget It" cookbooks. Good TNT recipes from real people - just like here Happy Flower

One of my personal faves for the crockpot is cabbage and boneless pork chops. Put cabbage into a greased crock, lay the chops on top, dump in a can of Campbell's Golden Mushroom Soup (I now use my own home canned I came up with - see Just Recipes Wink) and let it cook on low all day. Add carrots and onions too if you like with the cabbage. YUM!

I ran in the store after wk today and got the ingredients for this one,Dede! I got a low sodium mushroom soup tho! Cant wait!

Leah, to make it more like the Golden Mushroom soup, you can add a little of a tomato product if you want. It will be good with cr of mushroom too though LOL. If you bought the green label low sodium as opposed to the lowER or reduced sodium - just don't taste it straight from the can Vomit

Don't ask me how I know these things LOLOL.

Exactly - it'll be fine in the pot cooked in with everything. Out of the can.....

Just sayin'........ LOL

Actually I think what you got is not the lowest, but good choice. The very low is the one I am referring to Bug Eyed

Yesterday's experiment with the pork chops and cabbage was a success.  Today I'll probably recycle what is left in the pot, after taking out the remaining pork chops, into a pot of soup.  There are some really good juices in there!  Plus nearly melted cabbage.  Maybe add some more onion, potatoes, split peas, and whatever else strikes my fancy and let it cook all day today.
