There is a whole movement of Slow Food now - for those who cares about their health, the impact on the enivronment, the impact on the culture, diversity and many other aspects that food brings into our life. Food is not just food... It can be fast, it can be slow... We can die out or we can grow...

Yes, you are lucky. To be taken care of! I hope you manage well. I am so happy to hear that you are in a good mood (am I making an assumption?)
I'm still stuck upstairs with no sign of my lift yet, but i'm being waited on, hand and foot...
By the way, I forgot to say that I love fast food too - so long as it's good quality and well cooked.
Thanks again for your concern, Svetlana.
Dear Ian: strange things happen sometimes - your comment was awaiting moderation (I have already approved it when I received it), but it was still "awaiting" with this little detail - "Left 42 years ago".
Maybe it just seems like 42 years when one is trapped i'm my "Micro-Environment".
By the way: One of your commenters mentioned testicles cringing - I remember when another Pakistani chum, Naveed, cooked me a special meal of kidneys & rice...
Well, I can't say I imagine the feeling of testicles cringing for the lack thereof... But I can't see those Fast Food Chains - wherever you go - it is the same. The last time I bought a cheese croissant (hoping it would be Ok) - it was disgusting.
On your 2nd sentence, did you mean to say "can say" instead of "can't see"..?
Maybe "can't see" it is such a Russian expression - it does not mean I am not capable of seeing, it means "I cannot stand seeing"... Our culture is the dictatorship of Fast Food Chains! I cannot stand the word CHAINS either.
I also love trying new recipes - it gets me creative and in the good mood.
Your right about healthy meals at home not having to be slow to cook. In fact a lot of people over cook vegetables and other nutritious items until most of the vitamins and nutrients are gone. Very good point.
I think Slow Food Movement is not about the speed of cooking per se - Slow Food is ANTI-movement - against Fast Food - Commercial Chains, standardized tastes, et cetera. It appears from the answers people are not familiar with the term yet.
