We spent a week now with only buying five bucks worth of food. We can live for quite a while on our stock if needed, provided we keep the food
rotated and we keep replenishing it. We will be going out tomorrow to buy some sale stuff at a few stores, need potatoes again, we are down to maybe
ten pounds and they are on sale. Made twenty one pasties today, sent over twelve of those to the two kids houses, one granddaughters house, and my ex
wife even got one this time.
So the pasties we made wound up costing twenty five bucks for twenty one pasties but we gave twelve away. I think that means that it cost us twenty
five bucks for nine pasties...around two seventy a pasty for us. I should start making the kids buy the ingredients to make them, heck, I spent four
hours total making those, not including baking time....the wife bakes them. And since it was my idea, I have to do all of the dishes and there are
lots of pans and cooling racks to wash.
That's life, I tried the pasties my daughters made, even using my crust recipe....I think they will agree with me....we all would rather eat the
pasties I make.
