At least he used something sweet my Mother would constantly use salt instead of granulated sugar in recipes and we could not leave the table until our plates were empty.  Our Dog died  at an early age and our parents never did find out why the dog died.  Hey better the dog than us!  She was a terrible cook.  I learned at a very early age how to cook and NEVER confused the sugar for the salt or vise versa.

I don't like a lot of salt anyway.  I wonder how the dog could stand all that salty food?  I am told that I used to hide my vitamins under the kitchen table.  We didn't have any pets inside to scarf up the evidence.  I think I would have liked sugar in the gravy!
