I am so with you on this. We have had to start eating CR*P to stay within our budget, which was super tight anyhow. We have resorted to lots of bean, rice, hot dogs, mac and cheese...just junk. It has made me depressed because cooking is a stress reliever for me. I love to get in the kitchen and just tinker around. And I always feel so happy when I can serve a nice, nourishing and delicious meal to my family.

Is anyone else feeling this same frustration???
