Some friends of ours came over for lunch the other day; I served chicken and zucchini korma with rice. They are fairly close friends and know about this blog and Almost Frugal. The husband laughingly asked “Is this a frugal meal?” and we started talking about what makes a meal frugal.
I had a hard time answering that question, however. My gut wants to say that a meal that didn’t cost a lot of money is a frugal meal, but I feel like that answer is lacking in something. But what, I couldn’t tell you.
What do you think? What makes a frugal meal for you? Is it just the cost of the ingredients, or is there something more?
