A couple weeks, easy. Some things would go quicker than others. 2 adults and a 6 year old.

A week? We all eat a lot. 3 growing boys and 2 adults. And the only one with a weight issue is my dh. The rest of us are skinny!

We don't eat processed foods or frozen vegetables so a lot of that would not be used.

I cook every day and the meat would last 1.5 weeks at the most. The 1/2 gal of milk would be fine in 2-3 days.

That's about a week of groceries in my house, some of it might last 2 weeks. The milk would be gone in a couple of hours. I'm also a house of 7; Me, Hubby, 13 year old boy, 10 year old girl, and 3 year old girl.

EDIT: I am not a house of 7, I'm a house of 5. The above is what happens when you combine being exhausted, distracted by kids, and crappy math skills. Instead of more people pointing out I can't count (big grin), I'll edit this, but leave the original goof.

A week for the meat and 3-4 days for the other items.

2 weeks. We have 6 people living in my home 5 that can eat and a baby who is on formula. So I make big meals.

I have no idea. It would really depend on how many meals it made. I don't feel like figuring all that out. I can say that the milk wouldn't last more than a day or two though.
