Excellent reader commentary re: Sept. 6th "Home Economics"

As I said, the course description ("Home ECONOMICS") didn't reflect the course content — but probably should. Its focus was cooking, sewing, and housekeeping. Money matters weren't part of the equation.

Almost worse than winter tomatoes

 

Boneless Meat

 

We always hear the television cooking "stars" extolling the benefits of ribs, roasts, and other succulent meats that are cooked until they're "falling off the bone."

 

Unfortunately, today's major supermarkets have decided that consumers are too lazy to cook meats that have bones; hence, all you can find are boneless roasts and chops and steaks. Boneless. But there's loads of flavor in the bones.

 

Even whole fish, roasted or poached, are superior with bones.

 

Laziness is not a good thing; even when cooking and eating well are central. Prize animals have bones, so boneless is not better!

 

"Boneless" is bad grammar.
