I feel like I'm seeing home cooking and meal preparation become a vanishing art! I know so many families that seem to eat out at least once a day and others who cook at home only once or twice a week! It's not that I particularly enjoy cooking, but it's something we need and I do get pleasure from having myself and my family enjoy something I prepared.
Once years ago, co-workers were excited to buy chicken, broths, and packages of dumplings from Swanson's to make chicken & dumplings. This set them back a good twenty bucks and this was back in the eighties! I couldn't believe it. I can still make a pot of dumplings to feed two families for about $8.00.
The extra cost of all this eating out, and now this new trend of delivered meals ready to prepare! The thought just sickens me. I think of all the extra people who could be fed with all of that excess $$.
Do you still value home cooking? How often do you and yours dine out? What is your favorite kitchen memory?
