Food stamp pt 2

Just keeping tally of our eating expenses here, not trying to make a statement.

Yesterday we ate:
breakfast: oatmeal, bananas, milk - $4.50
lunch: chicken and cheese quesadillas, chips, leftover pineapple - $10.50
dinner: McDonald's - $22

Total - $37.

For a family of your size (9?), you're doing very well to eat for $37 per day. :-)

I haven't kept track in many years, but I think we're doing pretty well too, especially when Marline cooks.

I think your food prices are cheaper than ours. I wonder how you would go with several teenagers in the house, especially if they were the sporty types. That's when I really struggled foodwise. I've never seen kids eat so much but distance runners & soccer players just burn the calories ~ & then, of course! they want to replace them!!!

Maybe you should run the country? Looks like you're doing a great job running your bit of it. ♥

McDonald's usually costs $24, but this time Riah didn't get McNuggets (which are pricey). When we get happy meals it's $32. I LIKE the dollar menu!

Ganeida, people often remark at our children's ability to eat large quantities of food. I really don't want to think about 4 teen boys in the house. Yikes!

Not at all interested in running things. I have a sneaking suspicion that one reason campaign promises are broken so readily is that there's a lot of things going on that "we the people" just don't know about. All I can do is observe my corner.
