Your comments piqued my curiosity because I had always had a different
interpretation of that verse.  You neglected to include the comma in
your quote and I'm wondering if you think it changes the meaning.

D&C 89:13
And it is pleasing unto me that they should not be used, only in times
of winter, or of cold, or famine.

With the comma after "used," I interpret the verse to mean that the Lord
is pleased when we use meat in times of winter, cold, or famine -- not
as you said, "sparingly at all times."
