Small rant here. I promise it's just a small one.
I'm all for blogging and replying to blogs. But sometimes the tone seems a tad ... how can I put this delicately? ... snobbish.
Just like most common folks, I'm not a food snob (far from it). With five children and a single income, I can't afford to be anything but practical about food choices. I CAN afford to buy healthy food that my kids will eat and that also fit my food profile.
That normally means whatever yogurt is on sale, canned vegetables, ground beef, iceberg (*GASP*) lettuce, potatoes, you know, if it's large and cheap, I buy it and use it in my recipes. After all I'm not just feeding myself.
Lately I've taken heat on here for blogging about my food choices. There have been comments about why I should only eat organic, no-sugar, no preservatives, no salt, grass fed, blah blah blah.... I deleted the most controversial ones. My blog, my rules.
Don't get me wrong. I completely understand the need to reply to blogs for SparkPoint purposes and for accountability. I merely want to go on record as a person who understand the common person like myself who chooses Dollar Store food out of necessity.
End of rant.
BTW - We had fish sticks yesterday. They weren't organic.
