austerity doesn't mean unnecessary suffering

Yesterday's meal was two bacon-bleu double burgers topped with sun-dried tomatoes and thinly sliced cornichons (them's pickles to you hillfolk). I can't rely on fresh vegetables unless I were to buy them regularly throughout the month, which would nullify the whole point of undergoing this budgetary austerity. As a result, I have to rely on dried-and-reconstituted vegetables, as well as on pickled vegetables.

I actually kept track of my front-loaded shopping expenses for this pay period. We're gonna have to talk about that. It may be that, for future pay periods, austerity might actually mean a measure of suffering. I'm not looking forward to that.
