No time to cook?

Could it be because you just spent an hour in front of the television?

Michael Pollan in The Times Magazine:

“. . . a great many Americans are spending considerably more time watching images of cooking on television than they are cooking themselves — [cooking is] an increasingly archaic activity they will tell you they no longer have the time for.  What is wrong with this picture?”

Oh, the irony.

That said, cooking does take time, but it is a worthwhile investment.  The food tastes better and is healthier than any ready-to-eat or prepared options.  Food, and cooking, should be enjoyable and social.  Involve all members of your household, and it becomes a family activity rather than a chore.
