  •  I love to cook... (6+ / 0-)

    And I'm lucky enough to have a schedule that allows me to do so.  But I get pretty irritated when folks assume that people who don't have time or money to cook and get raw, organic etc. don't care about their food or are somehow just lazy. With the horrid job market and the insane pressure placed upon folks, it's kind of arrogant to assume that folks can just "budget their time differently".

    •  You read into my comment what was not there. (1+ / 0-)

      The foods we choose and who prepares them are a matter of personal preference and priorities. There was no judgement attached to it, just a statement that I think is self-evident.

      Not everyone can cook for themselves. Some people have no facilities to cook in. Some of us have to travel for business. Some of us have to work sixteen hour days or have other obligations that make our time not our own. Circumstances like that limit food options, for sure. But some of us just plain hate to cook our prefer to spend our time doing something else. That's a choice based on personal preference and priorities.  It's neither right nor wrong, positive nor negative. It's just a self-evident fact.
