You know, after 22 years you'd think I'd learn not to do it, but I just can't help it. She has some seriously ridiculous ideas about food and since she knows I'm dieting she can't help butting in and share her silly views with me. There's only so long you can listen to someone ranting about the subsidization of the corn industry and how it's responsible for everything ever. I correct her because I'm worried about her health. Last I knew, she was living off hummus and chips and diet coke. I'm trying to get her to eat.
...well, why argue with her? it's not like you have to always win the argument. if you know the facts, then you know the facts confused
I know that. But you go try to argue that with my mother and see how far you get.
...anything with the right enough gluten, protein and carbohydrate content can make bread; this includes a HUGE breadth of plant matter, from buckwheat, to barley, to corn, etc. it depends heavily on the variation of added ingredients that determine the kind of bread made. it is also possible that corn can be both.
Apparently the new think is that it's a grain. My mother and I just got into an hour long debate over this. Her last comment was "Well how can they make corn bread if it's not a grain? You can't make bread without grains!!!" emotion_facepalm
- corn IS a vegetable..... sweatdrop
