So what does $70 buy? Rather than 4 takeout pizzas, it buys enough for a big pot of chili, a double batch of guacamole, and a package of corn tortillas for homemade tortilla chips to feed the boys.
Plus enough for a replacement bag of butterscotch chips, stock-up on chili powder and cumin and a bunch of peonies for myself.
The other boys were kind enough to bring a variety of drinks, cookies, brownies and chips. What fun is a sleepover without it?
But with the leftover chili and guacamole, at least they see a glimmer of the value of homemade.
Enjoy the long weekend and honor Memorial Day.
