When I asked my husband what he wanted for dinner tonight he said, “hmmm. chicken.” When I mentioned that we could eat burgers or steak his expression looked quite puzzled. In an effort to keep food expenses down we eat a lot of pasta and poultry. Apparently, so much pasta and poultry that he’s forgotten there were any other options to choose from.
Have I gone too far with my frugality? Is it a bad sign that my husband assumes we’ll be eating chicken for dinner, rather than steak or burgers. Is it a bad sign that all of the meat in the house was given to us by my mother-in-law? It’s true, both the ground beef and steaks in the freezer were gifts from my mother-in-law. I can’t even remember the last time I purchased meat. Maybe my frugality has gone too far?
