I am into ‘cooking’ these days. I am learning to cook healthy, nutritional and good meals (that keep our gut bacteria and us happy with right Calories, mixtures and tastes - hopefully at the right costs too ;-). So far I have had fun and good meals.
We recently had visitors from Thailand who insisted on expensive meals (because it must be better than cheap food). I explained that good meals are hard to find. Expensive meals are easy because labor cost, marketing cost, rental, etc are high in AUS. High prices om AUS only reflect the high costs and taxes not high quality - and more efforts are put into promoting ordinary as super-special. But sigh!
