It's not that she eats that much but I am buying differently...I'm a salad and pasta girl and she is meat, potatoes and bread. I'm also wasting a good bit (or eating it myself...sigh...) even tho I try to fix just enough for her I never know what she'll eat this time. One night she is craving pinto beans and biscuits and several days later she informs me she doesn't like pinto beans, never has. To be perfectly honest, Mom can afford to help out and I can afford to feed her without her help. Am I just being petty?
