"making a meal out of a cracker"
Is it possible for you to explain what this means? (This is what a husband tells to a hesitant wife in the novel.)
"I want to tell her she’s making a meal out of a cracker and we could be finished in a minute if she put her mind to it, but she can surely see that"
Re: "making a meal out of a cracker"
I assume it means making something big out of something small, making something unnecessarily big, overreacting to things, etc. (A cracker is not a whole meal.)
