We have been eating out of our food storage and freezer for the last little bit. We made the decision to not spend $$ on groceries and put that money in savings to 'recoup' after taxes. So I have been baking and cooking from scratch for the last couple of months. Tonight my dear husband said, "It takes a wise woman to have all this food put by for us to eat. In the future I won't ask if you really need all that." What a wonderful compliment. It is a grand thing to receive such high praise.
