I accidentally blew through our grocery money this month, and in lieu of giving in and just spending more, I decided to get a flashlight and dig up some dinners from my it-just-never-seems-that-appetizing stash at the Back of the Pantry.
Tonight, I was pretty proud of myself. I managed to present a very good-looking and promising dinner to my husband.
My poor, unsuspecting husband.
When we started eating, the main course tasted just a little funny. We were both about halfway through eating when Michael got suspicious.
“Did you check the date on that box, Erin?”
I was so eager to crown myself Miss Thrifty that I went into denial and just kept eating and eating…
I hadn’t checked the date. Obviously. Because when Michael checked it, our dinner was over three years out of date! Talk about lose your appetite.
Noble Michael still ate all of his supper, as I did. Judge us if you want to. 🙂 We’re newlyweds with a new baby and we’re on a budget with a mission. I just hope we don’t wake up with food poisoning later!
