I go to my local supermarket two, three times a week, (hey retired here and it gets me outta the house, you got a problem with that?). Has anyone noticed how much of what is sold in food stores is presented as heat and serve (aka TV DINING)?
How many reading this can raise their hand and say they actually have talked and ordered meat cut by a butcher to their criteria?" How many of you can honestly say you can make a pie crust from scratch? or a cake, or even a cookie? How many of you spend more eating out, than you do for food to prepare at home?
How many of you make lunches for your kids to take to school, ---and how many of ya worry about the food the school cafeterias supply. (when the hell were vending machines allowed to be put in schools anyway?)----I'm sorry this is turning into a major rant---I need to go lay down and collect my thoughts and get civilized ----when did we ASSUME and grant responsibility for our kids to others?---aka,teachers, schools, etc.
Like are ya confident that the local teacher union dude is more concerned with your child's welfare, than he is, than in getting less work and more pay for the teachers in the Union?
Can you believe this whole wild tangent of blog was started from a simple complaint from some blue-state Liberal, griping about the lack of overall national standards about what is and what isn't nutritional in the foods vended, as well as cooked in schools in general----?? My generation never, never held the schools responsible for feeding our kids, ---WE held them responsible for EDUCATING them----. (radical thought huh?)----but hey the NEW liberal thought, (thank you Hillary)--- is it takes a village to raise a child---nobody TODAY expects parents to do it all alone------
