How much meat does your family eat on average

I was just thinking about it. I buy about 4lbs of meat every week and there are 4 of us, so we basically eat about a pound of meat each, every week. The kids don't always eat a full serving though, so they eat less than that. How about your family?

To clarify, the meat I bought for this week was

1lbs ground sirloin

1lb sliced turkey

3lbs chicken breasts

We eat meat with almost every meal, but it's more of a side dish for us.

Say I'm an airplane, and the gashes I got from my heartbreak

make the slots and the flaps upon my wing, and I use them to give me lift

Oh give me anything and I'll turn it in to a gift

 none at all, as a matter of fact, the last time I bought meat was for when my oldest son came to visit and I was shocked at the price. I cant imagine incorporating that into my weekly budget...glad we are vegetarian!

They obviously don't eat a full pound every day.
