food seeds... I like that brittneyleahc!
That was mostly what we had in our house too up until when my husband's parents moved in with us last winter to farm together. we are lucky enough to not really have any dietary concerns so I tried to always have a couple of quick meals stashed just in case. but now i have such a hard time because my mother in law does most of the managing of the kitchen and pantry and their style is so much processed, pre-cut, pre-packaged, american cheese slices, etc. It's really hard for me to try and teach my kids things like american cheese is bad for you and ramen noodles is just not a filling lunch and fresh veggies and fresh food is just simply better for you because i'm always afraid of offending my in-laws!
my father in law has started (after 35 years of marriage...) to try and learn to cook but he won't chop just about anything. if it's not pre-packaged or canned he just can't handle it it seems sometimes.
or they'll use a dehydrated soup mix and add so much other stuff that it becomes stuff with a sauce kind of meal which is fine and pretty filling but it's not soup anymore. (and it's got lots of preservatives which i tried to avoid before! argh!)
I shouldn't complain when I don't have to cook all that much but under most circumstances, I truly enjoy cooking and sometimes feel like i'm not allowed to cook... that and it can sometimes suck down our food money really fast because all those things are expensive! sometimes i almost wish I HAD to be gluten free (which my MIL really probably should be...) so I would have a more solid excuse to cook healthier food...
