Retro-Wednesday....






Blogger ate my first attempt..Grrrrrrrr.
The first 3 pics are lard cans that are for sale On-Line.
And for a pretty penny I might add.
The Farmer Peets can, we have had since the 40's.
It was used for camping and/or deer hunting to store food in, to keep it out of reach of critters.
Mine is NOT for sale.... of course I still use it!!!
Peace...!!!

That is a big can of lard. When McDonalds used to fry french fries in lard, they tasted so good. Now they fry it in who knows what and they taste just awful.

Ok, I will try to come up with a 55.

I used to use lard for frying eggs - they taste so good, and I used beef dripping for making chips (french fries to you) and you just can't beat the taste of those. Now of course we've gone all healthy and use sunflower oil!
