There was an article in our local newspaper today about a new Slow Food movement...from San Franscisco where some 30,000 people gathered for Labor Day weekend to persuade Americans to reject fast, cheap food and embrace organic, local agriculture and a return to the kitchen.
I agree, we have become a nation of fast food junkies and non-cooks. It takes time and energy to plan out menus, shop carefully and then cook nutritious meals. I remember one KFC commerical that says, we're having a home cooked meal, then the mom brings in the paper buckets of KFC chicken and side dishes. We are raising a generation of kids that don't know how to cook or what real home cooked meals look like.
