OMG, when did these kids become ravenous monsters??
I went grocery shopping. I bought 4 boxes of cereal. They were GONE after 2 mornings. This morning I cooked 15 eggs and 16 muffins. GONE! Yesterday for lunch? Five boxes of mac and cheese....GONE! Dinner last night, a 24 pack of hot dogs...not quite gone. They ate 19 of them. We got pizza...4 large pizzas GONE. I made chicken for dinner...used a whole family package of drumsticks. That was gone and they wanted more. Along with a large pot of rice, and forget the green beans because they were obliterated.
I need to buy a farm. A really big farm. I think it would work out cheaper to just buy a farm and animals and grow everything.
I realize I might get bashed for the food choices here. I have to buy as cheap as possible. If it's on sale and it's a lot of food in one package, I buy it. I make a lot of homemade stuff and stretch it out...but here in the summer when they're home all day, i can't seem to keep enough of ANYTHING in the house! It's cray cray.
*ETA* I have 8 children. No teenagers...I know a lot of kids eat a lot of food but honestly? They've never really gone through it like this before.
*ETA again* I feel compelled to say I'm not "bitching". Just a little amazed at how much they're packing away. No, I don't feed them ONLY processed food. I do keep fruits and vegetables and I do cook homemade food. I KNOW I have a lot of children and I KNOW they're going to eat a lot. They're getting bigger, I suppose it just shocked me how much more they're eating compared to last year. We can afford the food for them, but I do have to shop sales and at places like Sam's.
