What comes around

Hi to, everyone.
I grew up in the 50's where my mother kept chickens and my father grew vegetables. We ate good wholesome food freshly prepared and my mother loved to bake cakes and show us kids the skills of the kitchen. Then came supermarkets and such a variety of foods from all over the world we were spoilt for choice. Cookery lessons in school was replaced by Food Technology and we were told you don't need to learn to cook just buy it from the supermarket, put in the freezer then cook it in the microwave. The world has suddenly gone mad, health problems and people who can't boil an egg.
Suddenly cookery lessons are back in schools to teach the basic skills. Organic food is becoming very popular and we are encouarged to grow our own veg, support farmers markets and shop locally.
What comes around goes around. Any comments gratefully received. Ann
