Everyone knows how convenient Fast Food is…that’s why it’s Fast Food. But perhaps it would be less appealing if we were to start refering to it as “Fat Food?” Just a thought…anyway…a friend of ours has come up with an excellent idea that comes with many benefits. He has declared December to be “Fast Food Free.” I thought it was a great idea. Having three children, getting enough sleep, clean clothes, clean dishes, and three square meals is sometimes a challenge (and how about a shower before 3 pm?).
But the greater challenge is affording those three nutrionally sound meals, for a family of five, seven days a week without breaking the bank. Along with all those busy days, comes the challenge of not picking up quick food from a window.
We really don’t eat out all that much to begin with, but I still look forward to a renewed challenge of further cut backs. My fear? Not being able to fight the appeal of a hot pizza being delivered to my door after a long day…let’s face it, whether I make it, or Domino’s makes it, we love pizza like a bunch of college kids around here!
