Hi guys! I feel like it's been forever since I've posted anything on here. We are still moving into the house. We now have heat(wood stove). We have water.(Only in the bathtub for now) We have electric.(In part of the house) Someone commented on my last post that it was a lot like camping. It really is! This place IS starting to feel more like a home. It's going to take a while though. I was going to wait until I had the whole house done before I showed pictures. Well, it's going to be a long while before it is all done. So, I figured I would start on one room at a time. You will see the finished product soon. I promise. (Don't get too excited, I can only do so much with what I've got. lol)
Anyway, I had to write something about what I see(heard)on t.v. the other day. I keep the t.v. on sometime just for the noise and something caught my attention. It was on Oprah. It was a show about cooking. Actually, it was a show about how to cook "good for you" foods. They were saying how cooking for yourself is more healthy than frozen dinners or eating out. Well DUH!!!!
Then I got to thinking,(I know, it's scary) people don't know HOW to cook anymore. Grocery stores are full of food that is already made or instant. So the up and comming generations really DON'T know how to fix a meal from scratch. They have it in their minds that if you cook something from scratch it will take all day. Wrong! It just takes some planning. Get the chicken out of the freezer or making sure you have the right ingredeance.
I think we need to teach people how to cook. Get them back to the way our mothers and grandmothers use to cook for their families. Get back to whole foods. It's no wonder our kids are over weight. I think it's our duties to help them to learn how to cook.
Ok, I'm going to get off my soapbox now. lol
So until next time,
Small Farm Girl, good cooker.
