I ended up cooking the entire piece of salmon I bought. It was $14.75 and when I took it out of the package, I realized it wasn't going to be enough for two dinners. Sure, I could've stretched it a bit, but Dave didn't get home until after 11:00 and the last thing I wanted to do was skimp on his dinner. I waited to eat until he got home and together we ate about two thirds of the fish. He took the rest of it for lunch today.
This means that along with the baby red potatoes I roasted (I forgot I was out of orzo pasta!) and the broccoli, dinner for TWO PEOPLE and one lunch was close to $20. Again, I only buy salmon once a month, but this is a good illustration of how the AMOUNT you eat can affect your grocery budget. We eat A LOT.
