The Dayton Kitchen

Eating well. So get ready and get butter.

How it is. April 28, 2008

  1. I prepare very nearly all of the food we consume.  But I recognize the Value and Importance of boxed macaroni and cheese, hot dogs, and cans of spaghetti-o’s.
  2. I do most of my dry goods shopping at Molasses Hill Bulk Foods in Alexander.  So if you are thinking ‘Wow.  She uses a lot of ingredients.  That’s totally expensive’, please know that these ladies can hook you up with super stuff at super prices.
  3. I am not into counting calories, or being a vegetarian, or the all-meat-weight loss diet.  That said, I am completely in favor of calories, vegetables, and meat.  And carbs.  And coffee and chocolate.  Pretty much:  eating.
  4. I am into eating reasonable amounts of foods, dessert and coffee included, that taste good.  Also bourbon, beer, and my uncle’s wine.
  5. I believe we are responsible for knowing as much about where our food comes from as possible.  We make every effort to support our local farmers, especially those with sustainable agriculture and organic practices, because we plan to live here for a long time, and we want the agrarian heritage of our county to remain healthy and strong.
  6. I believe that there has to be a good way to eat every edible thing that God placed on this planet.  So I keep trying.
  7. I believe that children will eat what you give them to eat.  But if you only ever offer them chicken fingers and fries with a side of ketchup, it is your fault your child is a picky eater.
