Oh, dear. It’s astonishing how much olive oil we use in our house. We reach for the olive oil for cooking and as a condiment.
I use olive oil to make everything from omelets to onion rings - but never in oatmeal. Oh, no.
I slather it on garlic bread and grilled cheese sandwiches. And no one seems the wiser. In fact, they love it.
Olive oil is supposed to be a lot healthier than butter or margarine. Of course, those statistics tend to run in cycles.
Maybe it's the monounsaturated fatty acids (
MUFAs) in olive oil. After all, those are widely considered to be healthy fats. Cardiologists seem to like that idea.
|Nope. That's Olive Oyl.|
In any case, olive oil is likely to remain a staple in our home.
