He wrote back, "Pizza night?" I don't take much convincing to not cook AND eat pizza! We wrote a check, picked up the pizzas and chowed down.
Last night, when I couldn't sleep, we were emailing each other while he was at work. I told him I was regretting the pizza. In his next email, he said something pretty groundbreaking.

Chicken raised without added antibiotics or growth hormones. *Federal regulations prohibit the use of added hormones in poultry.
However, if we're willing to spend $4.50 on a happy meal, then maybe we need to step back and re-evaluate our priorities. I'm just as guilty of this as anyone. It's hard to get out of the "quick fix" mindset. It's cheaper and better for us to have something like Ian's and some fruit at home...then go to a park. But McDonald's has been ingrained in our minds - and our childrens' minds! - as this great "treat". The food comes in a fun box and when you're done, you get to go play on the indoor playground! Who cares if every single thing about the meal is sub-par?
