"Home Economics draws from a range of disciplines to achieve optimal and sustainable living for individuals, families and communities. Historically, Home Economics has been in the context of the home and household, but this has extended in the 21st century to include the wider living environments as we better understand that the capacities, choices and priorities of individuals and families impact at all levels, ranging from the household, to the local and also the global (glocal) community"
I am quoting from Wikipedia so, when I refer to 'home economics' no one thinks I am talking about cooking at school!
This is what 'the goodness' in my blog sub title refers to. And what better example today than a photo of asparagus picked just before it was to be cooked for our dinner. Divine- it just happens to be my fav vegie (probably because it has a resonably short season and is always precious- unlike those very prolific crops, for example cucumbers- how many cucumbers can one family and their extended family, and their neighbours, work colleges etc eat!!
