This is sort of a rant post. I am sure there is people that will agree with me in some of things I will say here.
I get so tired of making dinner or trying to satisfy everyone at dinner time. I do not like it when someone says go ahead and make it and I will eat something else. That’s not the point of me making dinner for the family. I want to try to satisfy everyone. That is my job as a wife and mother. It is hard to find new recipes that the whole family will like.
I get tired of making a dinner meal, then putting a plate in the microwave or fridge to be eaten later. Then to find out it is never eaten. That is just wasting. We don’t have the money to waste a meal.
There are some days when there is plenty of food in the house. Then we everyone is home, all they do is snack on anything possible. Then there a days where we are between paychecks and low on snack foods. I hear the complaints that there is nothing to eat. But truly there is stuff to eat in the house just not what they want.
There are days that I do not ask for anyone’s opinion about what I making for supper. Then when supper is made, a comment is made and they are not eating it.
Food cost money. I do not always buy things that are not on sale. That sometimes bothers my husband. I try to watch the money as closely as I can. One thing I make sure of in this family is that family is fed. Which sometimes is hard to do because I have a teenager in the house and it seems like he is always hungry.
It sometimes can be hard to live a frugal life. Spouses can sometimes but head on various ideas of living such as homemade dish detergent or buying things on sale.
