Just think about this.
I was raised in a two parent house with a SAH mom who cooked dinner every night.
I've cooked all my adult life and I LIKE it.
I'm a educated type with a Master's degree and have plenty of access to information about nutrition--and the knowledge to sort fact from fiction.
I have a full time job that pays decently-though contrary to popular belief, as a government worker, neither the Man nor I has a fabulous salary.
Speaking of the Man, I have a spouse who brings in a salary besides mine, who has always been an active partner in child care and does the dishes. Every night.
I have a car and access to some fabulous grocery stores and a great small farmer's market that is open on Sundays.
I have a shelf full of cookbooks, a pantry stuffed with canned goods, a microwave, a slow cooker and stuff in the freezer.
And yet, after 3 days of programs and household matters, it's Thursday night, and I have no idea what we are having for dinner.
It's not going to be McDonalds--though it MIGHT be a sub from Wegman's. But that's not my point.
My point is, if with all the ways I am blessed I can still find it a struggle to cook and serve healthy dinners every night, what do you expect from the folks who DON'T have some of these things?
