In North America there are many of us that eat out entirely too much. I confess, I was guilty of this at one time. After realising how simple it was to come up with a meal that tasted better than 90% of the take out places I frequented - all was changed.
Mark Bittman can help lead anyone to eating better meals at home with his article " Summer Express: 101 Simple Meals Ready in 10 Minutes or Less " in the New York Times. I plan to put many of them to use.
