Up until this post I thought you two were having some sort of Muppets old guys in the balcony upper crust in-joke banter.
But for the record, your mother is absolutely correct. Made from scratch meals using raw ingredients, while far more time consuming and more expensive in the short term (Ie, stocking up at the grocery store is pricey compared to buying a 3.99 happy meal or a single 2 dollar frozen pizza) meals as such are far cheaper in the end and far healthier than feeding your fat ass kids microwave meals and mcdonalds.
Apparently no one in America aside from your mother and I know this fact.
then again I ate taco bell tonight so I am a damn hypocrite.
And also did anyone else have "We make it you bake it" pizza places? I vaguely remember those as a small kid.
