Feeding lots of people ...

June 18th, 2015 at 07:08 am

I try to keep spending at the $125-$135 range per week (and this includes all consumables including pets/cleaning/paper/personal care/etc).

I may have to have a small grocery slush fund for those many times when I'm having lots of kids over. Last night I fed dinner to eight children (we did Italian beef sandwiches and meatball subs). This morning I have seven for breakfast. We've trucked through a majority of the fresh fruit, so I'm running back to Aldis for more $1.29 bags of plums/peaches/nectarines.

Tonight its going to be leftovers: I have about two cups cabbage tomato soup/two servings turkey chili/one beef sandwich/and 17 meatballs.

Stocked up on milk which happened to be $1.69/gallon at Aldi's. We go through lots of milk here.

I'm thinking I should most likely have a bit of cash on hand for a Little Ceasar's pizza or two, and more baking items on hand to at least make cookies or muffins for breakfast.

This is definitely workable with a plan. This just happens to be a random observation and musing.

    I think your musing is headed towards a good plan.

    Funny, I was just joking to AS that this batch cooking I'm doing for the local organization is good practice for when the kids are older. I was just thinking for when they have massive appetites in their teens, but she mentioned that we'd probably have to feed bunches of their friends from time to time.

    I think it's worth the extra costs to know your kids like having their friends over .. if they have their friends over, then not only do you know where they are (and mostly) what they are doing, but you also get a good sense of who (personality, etc) their friends are. A major win win I would think. Smile
