All cultures love their own food traditions. I've been to meals with families in France, where all we did was talk about the food - the tender radishes, the crisp beans, the jiucy chicken - as it was served course by course for a 2-hour lunch. yes these people were not fat. and my own Ukrainian food - LOVED - esp at Xmas the supreme meal, all we do (did) was complement the cooks for the tender pierogies, the gorgeous fresh fish, and so on.
and then along came Frankenfood.com. They filled the void where uprooted impoverished people no longer had a strong food tradition. Like my DH's mother - poor, dad probably a coal miner emigrated to Cananda, 12 kids, married into a bit of middle-class, first on the blocvk for Chambers food club and a freezer and...Frankenfood! My DH is totally addicted to it. he once weighed 400 lb. from eating mounds and mounds of junk. Because his mom had no strong culture on which to base her meals. she's still out there, looking for every new product at Walmart:-(
it is a constant battle here, what comes into the house. Cause once it's in, it's in. and it gets eaten.
yesterday, it was over Captain Crunch. yes, a giant bowlful, supposed to be breakfast.
My mother made chicken soup from chickens, from the farmer, feet and all. Especially feet. 2 food worlds colliding. I watch in disbelief as his mom puts applesause on her salmon. applesauce. cuz it's sweet. the kind out of the jar, with sugar.
Sorry, on a rant here
Oh, and Frankenfood.com makes sure it dumps it all over the world, too. but we all know that.
A gorgeous morning here, have a great day all!
