There comes a moment when you realize what you really need and you gain the ability to equate it with what you have or what you know you need rather than on marketing or peer pressure (both direct and indirect).

I eat so much fast food now that I don't live with my parents. My mother used to cook all the time. $4.00 dollars for 2 double cheeseburgers and a large french fries doesn't seem like much but it adds up day by day. Hahaha.

Haha man, I hear you. Everyday has been fast food lately. It's seriously draining my pockets dollars at a time, but whenever I actually buy groceries to make something, I find I spend just as much money and then use way more time just preparing it. It's like, what the heck? Didn't it used to be cheaper to prepare food at home then buy it conveniently?

According to the media, buying ingredients and making food at home is healthier for the body (that's a given) and the mind. Who the hell knows anymore? All I know is, I love life when I can shove my face with fast food while playing Sonic Generations or Skyrim on my system. Not to mention, playing Skyward Sword via Dolphin and a Bluetooth dongle.

You guys need one of these:
http://www.georgeforemancooking.com/p-40-george-foreman-champ-grill-with-included-grill-sponge.aspx

Then you can buy the packs of frozen hamburgers at the store, plug in the grill, throw the hamburger on, close it, wait 5 minutes. Eat. Wipe grill down. Just as much time as you would spend in the drive through. Pick up a pack of 2$ nacho chips, lunches for two weeks for 10 bucks.

Mmm. Yeah, Walmart has those big ass boxes of patties you can request at the deli.
