Too much cream in my coffee by the Iron Skillet band.
That was actually the name of the band that played at my wedding reception. Long story.
Last week I took a good look at what used to be my non-stick pan and realized just how much coating wasn't there. You know where it's gone? Inside me and my kids.
For someone who takes pretty good care to prepare fresh, home-cooked (often organic) foods I realized I was completely missing another side of the 'healthy' equation. It's not only what we cook, and how we cook it, but the tools used. I had been a hold-out on non-stick because I like my omelettes just so. I don't, however, like them just-so-chemical-laden.
The Lodge logic 10.25 came home with me that very day. What I used to consider a campfire staple is now my mainstream. It's about time. [Jill's piece, and breakfast in my friend's kitchen had me primed.]
And the cream in my coffee? It''s just about my last vice. I know. I know.
Like so many of us, I've been watching Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution. It highlights some real problems. It's compelling and disturbing. My biggest question so far -- and it raises many-- is where are the bagged lunches? Seriously. It is a parent's job to nourish and to fortify. I know I'm probably "singing to the choir" here, but don't people pack lunches from home anymore? And why not?
