Julia Child, "It's so beautifully arranged on the plate -- you know someone's fingers have been all over it."

But, they have had their fingers all over it while they were cooking it. We just have to hope they wash their hands well.

I bet every aspect of this subject has been coverd. I diddn't have time to read them all.My only addition to the thread is that I really love to cook.I spend most work days looking forward to getting home to cook.It's relaxing to me.I really do dislike frozen dinners and never buy them.I rarely attempt complicated meals dureing the week but, for the most part I useually make somethig kind of edible.I know that not everybody loves to cook and for those people they should really give it a try it really is alot of fun.

My thinking as well, Princess. In fact the title of this thread alone is also a severe over-generalization.

Just my observation in my little spot on the map.[/QUOTE]

Patty,
Your little closed minded spot on the world is a sad one to be in. I can't help but be offended by your general lack understanding.

Or is it that your living that middle class lifestyle yourself, that makes you so well informed and judgmental?

Ok, this is what you people seem to have a problem with, so be it. Please reread what I have highlighted in brown.
Those of you who did not like that part of my post did not even comment on the first part of it. WHY? Agree or disagree or just want to be controversial?

Meet you on the monkey bars.

Sorry, that was a upset generalization. And kinda a inside joke that has nothing to do with this site.
