Friday Food for Thought: Rising Food Prices

Have you noticed your grocery bill creeping up on you?  Along with rising fuel prices, the cost of food has been steadily increasing worldwide as well.  This article from the New York Times talks about some of the causes- increased demand for both food and biofuels, political unrest, and even global warming, to name a few.

From The New York Times, based on Bureau of Labor statistics
Does this affect what you buy and what you cook?  Are you doing anything differently to keep your food costs down?  I know I'm looking forward to the farmers markets opening here, where I can get better-quality produce and meat for the same, if not better, prices as the grocery store.
