Sounds like a pretty good cookbook. You aren't kidding about saving on food budgets right now.

We laugh when we go to Sam's or Walmart and checkout. There seems to be more food for the fur kids than the humans!

But, we both need to lose 30 lb's. anyway!

We are trying to be very careful with what we cook and eating everything we cook. Food is just crazy expensive. But, I have way more to lose than 30 lbs!
