Manteca is spanish for lard ... I've noticed the last several years that they started putting lard on one side of the box and manteca on the other .... it should also be in the cooking oil isle and depending who put it on the shelf and how much a hurry they were in it will either say lard or manteca.

I think my first cookbook was Easy Basics For Good Cooking by Sunset that I bought at a yard sale sometime after my wife and I were married, I remember seeing some of my mom's hand written recipes when I was younger but I haven't been able to find those for years and with my dad passing away back in April unfortunately I'm pretty sure that they are gone forever (to the best of my knowledge she never owned a cookbook).

I need ideas for things I can grow in the garden this late in the year now that the weather is starting to cool off ... I know I can plant mustard greens but I really don't know that much about what to grow for late summer and fall weather ....

Any and all...
