Home Economics 101

Welcome to the Home Ec Section. Matters of the family sometimes bring joy and other times bring grief. But it is never trivial: Family matters! Feel free to discuss topics such as the sanctity of marriage; the awesome responsibility of raising children; the struggles of communication problems; the grief of losing a loved one; or anything else that relates to the home and family. However, due to the more personal nature of this section, I ask that you would be especially thoughtful of the readers' feelings. My earnest hope and prayer is that the discussions in this section will help families grow in the love of Christ.

But remember, always play by the rules: here

    That is true

    I think the energy saving aspect is probably very worthwhile but I honestly do not imagine we would use it that much. I think it would also depend on the type of cooking one did and I cannot think of what we would actually cook in it.

    Thank you for the tips though.

      I suppose cooked fruits and vegetables are ok, but I don’t want to spend a long time in food prep and don’t want to rely on frying.
      That sounds more like an acid problem to me. I could be wrong though.

      I have problems eating certain things due to taste, and texture. I also have a sensitive stomach and some digestive issues so I'm pretty limited on what I eat. One of the more tasty options has been the Fiber One chocolate brownies. Even the generic Kroger version of this was pretty good. In fact the Kroger* They do have fiber, but no sugar. They taste better than a lot of the stuff it is an alternative to. I also recently tried out Magic Spoon cereal**. No sugar or gluten in it. It doesn't have much fiber compared to other similar stuff. However does have a good amount of protein in it. It's a little odd on the texture, and some people are sensitive to the aftertaste. Fortunately for me the aftertaste wasn't an issue. Probably the biggest problem is the price. The stuff is around $10 a box, and the boxes aren't that big.

      *I'm not 100% sure it was Kroger, it might have been Wal-Mart. The brand had a pink box. It tastes pretty close to the Little Debbie brownies, but without the nuts.

      **I've only tried the cocoa flavor so far, but we have a box of peanut butter, and cinnamon flavor as well. I'm curious as to how they Peanut Butter one is.
