Now, don't take me wrong, I am borderline diabetic associated with diet NOT genetic, (Typ1 IDDM, or TypII NIDDM). You see it on TV all the time. Yesterday the news was LAUDING Wendy's as the fastest drive thru for 1.5 hours before I heard ANYTHING about Syria Bombing Turkey....WTF....REALLY. The #! issue is people don't cook anymore, not earth shattering but it IS a fact. As a population, for several reasons, we DON'T cook, we "heat up" what comes in a box, package or can OR froze!!! NOTHING is made as our parents made anymore. Most of us here do, BUT for the population at large, it's bag, box, can or froze. Scott123 the other day responded to a post about Neapolitan Pizza and the bastardizing of the culture and the original concept and style of that kind of pie, but I started to think about it, and he was right, but in a different sort I was thinking, and it goes WAYYYY beyond fire roasted pizza, it IS about people "NOT" cooking anymore.....PERIOD!!! The danger is in NOT losing the way to a culture of pizza but in OVERALL the culture of cooking in the home! They just heat or reheat stuff that's pre-done for us. Yes, NOT earth shattering concept here but think about it, most are on welfare looking for a cheap out, OR 2, working parents that don't have the time and TOO many just don't care!!
There needs to be a push to COOK, to MAKE food, NOT just to "heat and eat" When fast food drive thru EXCEEDS the ramifications of 2 countries firing salvos at each other in what could result in a war that can affect us all......WELL, this planet has issues to say the least!!!! OKAY, I'm done. NOT starting politics, just saying.....teach your family how to cook REALLLLLL food, and look at what's important in life, health and family!!!
