Given the choice what would you pick?
A well cooked t-bone (insert your favorite here) steak....um, um, um. Add to that a big baked potato with all the trimmings, sauteed mushrooms, steamed asparagus, and a green salad with croutons. Desert? Oh, yes, please. A meal fit for a king.
Or, a hamburger (or vegie burger)? On toast or on a bun? My favorites are what I call the Western burger that has lots of barbeque sauce and onions. The All American has mayo, lettuce and, tomatoes. There are so many things you can do with a hamburger. Add a side of potato salad, slaw, macaroni salad, chips, or fries. The possibilities are almost endless.
Most people consider being In The Trenches as doing without. Sometimes that is necessary but most of the time it means just making strategic economical choices, at least sometimes. A dollar or two may not seem to make a difference but over a period of time it adds up. Whether you want to call it frugal living, cutting back, living simply, or sticking to your budget it can still taste good.
So, what's your favorite?
