I am a strong believer in frugality, but I also think that paying for quality and living a healthy lifestyle is a part of living a frugal life. Eating rice and beans is not what frugality is about, it is about living a simple life and saving where it is possible, while splurging where it is needed.
I have wanted to grill salmon for my kids and husband for a while, but at almost $10 per pound, I just could not justify it in the grocery budget. Last week, I finally found a deal that the grocery budget could handle, so I made sure to pick it up.
To compliment the beautiful salmon, I picked up herbs and pepper from the garden for a marinade, and it turned out to be a very popular meal.
My kids don’t even like the word fish, so instead it was just salmon, and sure enough even my extremely picky four-year-old son actually ate some, not all but some…
I served the grilled herb and habanero salmon with couscous and grilled vegetables.
