After 4 m/c, our is here!
Same issues here! Dh isn't much of a snack food addict though, he goes for the gourmet stuff. So he puts things in the cart like pickled asparagus, eggplant bruschetta, smoked salmon, gourmet cheese (okay, this one I have a hard time taking back out of the cart!) etc. If he is with me at Whole Foods on tasting day watch out! He'll blow my budget for the entire next week if I don't watch him carefully!
He also is horrible at restaurants! He must order a drink, an appetizer and dessert. The other night we found ourselves running late and having to do some evening errands, so I suggested we grab a quick dinner. I even reminded him that we have plans for a nice dinner out this weekend so we want to keep the tab low. No dice, the final bill was $60 including the tip. Now he is upset because I said we cannot go out this weekend as planned, there's not enough left in the budget.:
Umm are you married to my husband too??? Seriously DH is exact same way. He just seriously loves fine food and aged scotch. Yeah and none of the garbage. Although he does 90% of the cooking, so technically I may just be paying a higher food bill for a personal chef.
And to give him credit, while I was in school, he was super budget gourmet chef. We used our indian food cookbook a lot back then
