If everyone is out working 50+ hours a week to maintain a "lifestyle", who realistically can be home to cook? Or check homework or know what their children are really doing? Fit is in the eye of each husband & wife. No bleeding heart lecture from me - I just think we could have some truly meaningful discussion in this forum (and the Den & Dating/Relationships) if we dropped some of the posturing and provacateur style postings.

About the dinner thing what some people fail to do is prepare. My grandmother worked 50+ hours a week at a local hospital but there was always a homecooked meal waiting for her family. It's all because on Saturday and Sunday night my granny was making dinner for the week and putting it up. She would prepare it right to the point of where all she had to do when she got home was get a box of cornbread and mix that to gether warm her meal up and start fixing plates. My mother did that too, all...

My mom did too. What she would do is take out the meat that she was going to prepare early in the morning so that it would be thawed out before she came home from work. Not only does cooking save time. It saves a hell of a lot of money.

Great point. I usually cook at least three to four days out of the week. One of my favorite meals to prepare is vegetarian lasagna with whole wheat noodles, layers of egg plant, fresh spinach, fresh tomatoes, onions, green pepper, and soy cheese. For a side dish, I usually prepare roasted cauliflower with garlic, and side salad filled with a combination of nutrient-packed greens of all colors. For dessert, baked apples with cinnamon. Hmmmm.
