    I just thought of the best anti-Better Homes and Gardens slogan:
    Your home and garden would be better with butter.

    Currently trying to figure out WTF to eat (for IBS-C).

    I can count those as such, if prepped/cooked properly

    Home and Gardens bought a bit of butter.
    The butter that they bought was a bit bitter
    And made their batter bitter.
    But a bit of better butter makes better batter.
    So then they bought a bit of better butter
    Making all of their bitter batter better

    I'm sure they didn't count the bread in the net carbs. Either they left it out on purpose and didn't inform staff to leave it out, too, or the staff just didn't know or didn't think about it. Last option is most likely - they probably don't really have any idea what low carb means.

    I've had the cheese thing happen to me multiple times, and with butter: "Do you have real butter, or margarine?" "It's butter, see?" (shows me Spread)

    That thing - people calling margarine butter annoys me. That has also happened to me in a restaurant. I hate fake food!!! Margarine tastes so awful I can't see how anyone would be proud of it like they seem to be, handing it out left right and centre. Gross.

    Its so CW. People are terrified of butter so they buy "marge" which tastes like phlegm but less salty and then they insult us butter lovers by pedalling it and calling it butter. My parents do this and they are reasonably intelligent and should know better.

    Tricky bots, annoying ass dumb bots or foreign bots for me - copying text about a little soy sauce and olive oil. I'm still having some spam once a week at this point, but I report it out. I can't bring a spam bot into the house or it'll be game over for me.

    Had a co-worker bring in cinnamon rolls for her birthday.

    I thanked her, but begged off having one. She said, "There is a tub of frosting for them. Just eat a bit of that with a spoon if you want to avoid the carbs."
