The Lost Art of Home Cooking

Americans are eating their weight and more  every year in genetically engineered food, a new Environmental Working Group analysis shows. "On average, people eat an estimated 193 pounds of genetically engineered food in a 12-month period. The typical American adult weighs 179 pounds."

Maybe it’s because old time home cooking is becoming a lost art. Traditional cooking skills are dying out; so many modern cooks use boxes and cans as a basis for everything they do in the kitchen. Making gravy, custard, biscuits, pastries and stews seem to be a lost art. Even slow roasted meat, pot roast and homemade noodles seem like, “old people food,” to a lot of modern cooks. Too bad!

When we eat out I can’t wait for my next meal at home – so I can eat something good. Seems like in today’s world most people eating at home can’t wait to eat out. Not this old pot slinger.

-And a word on snacks – In Japan they say everybody is either in the Sweets Party or the Spicy Party. Divided as to whether they would rather have a sweet snack or a salty/spicy snack.
