Wasting Away

We do not rate our personal skills highly enough, whether around the house or in the kitchen, perhaps especially in the kitchen for by now we all know that home-cooking is the best, and once we have had enough practice, we can produce food that would be very highly priced if we had the same served to us in a restaurant.
What this credit crunch has done is brought us back to the point where we can all live like kings without having to spend very much at all. All we have to do is - well, DO the necessary. Bring back all things home-made, whether knitwear, patchwork, jams/marmalades/preserves. Grow at least some of our own produce, and discover (re-discover if old enough to remember) the pleasure we gain when doing-it-ourselves.
