So, according to CNN’s Eatocracy, today is national Fast Food Day. Well…everyday is some kind of food day, from apples to zucchini and everything in between. It is sort of silly, but it is what it is. We did just have National Food Day on Oct 24, promoting home cooking and eating real food, as opposed to processed, fast junk. As opposed to today’s day. I guess there has to be a day for everything.
I actually did not think that far ahead, I only found out about this just a little while ago. In the meantime, I started some soup – White Bean Soup that has been simmering for the past hour. And it’s going to snow, so I am looking forward to it.
So what I propose to do is make your favorite fast food at home today.
Cooking fast food at home is a horse of a different color. When I’m hungry and need something fast, I now have fast food that comes from my kitchen that’s whole and real, that I can make in just a few minutes. My favorite being a fried egg sandwich or grilled cheese. But with some leftovers in the fridge, I can have a quick meal ready in about 5 minutes or less. Even a burger is quick, maybe about 10 min. Hey, that’s fast food. It’s good. It’s real and I know what’s in it.
So, it is National Fast Food Day, go make something fast and good and real in your kitchen and celebrate.
