More Americans eating at home

The New York Times has a great article about how more and more Americans are eating at home rather than going out to dinner. Cost is one factor, but health benefits are also noted. Not really mentioned in the article is family time–cooking and eating dinner together is one of the best parts of the day in our home. I hope this site can help your family plan good relativity easy meals as it does for our family.
