    :lmao: Because I'm always saving bones and scraps till we have enough for soup or stew. We had a potpie tonight made from broth I'd saved from a roast a month ago, but what made him say this was my hoarding of the potato chip crumbs into a freezer bag for casserole. We would never throw those crumbs away (and no, dear, you cannot eat them as a snack now that they're frozen and officially part of mom's cooking ingredients.)

    From Arrested Development:

    Tobias Fünke: Do you see me more as the respected dramatic actor or more of the beloved comic actor?
    Carl Weathers: Whoa, whoa, whoa. There's still plenty of meat on that bone. Now you take this home, throw it in a pot, add some broth, a potato. Baby, you've got a stew going.
    Tobias Fünke: Yes, that's fine, but I would like to focus on my acting, Mr. Weathers. I did give you my last $1, 100.
    Carl Weathers: Let me tell you a little story about acting. I was doing this Showtime movie, Hot Ice with Anne Archer, never once touched my per diem. I'd go to Craft Service, get some raw veggies, bacon, Cup-A-Soup... baby, I got a stew going.
    Tobias Fünke: [pause] I think I'd like my money back.

    Thanks. :) It just cracked me up when he told me that. I hadn't realized how my philosophy of using every bit of everything we buy could look so extremely thrifty to a kid.

    Baby, you got a stew going!!!

    I admit to having purchased a car at a police auction. That's my Carl Weathers-ness.

    AD is/was such a great show!

    That's how we've been able to afford trips to WDW each year. By being frugal throughout the year on things that are controllable.
