Day 1-Potato Soup .71 each meal
Salad w/homeade dressing
Day 2-Grilled Lemon Pepper Chicken $1.35 each meal/person
Spicy Roast Potatoes or Oven Potatoes
Green Beans & Onions
Day 3-Quick Ham Casserole or Bean Soup $1.00 each/$ .85/each meal/person
Totals for dinner: $3.06 or $2.91 with the bean soup instead
Oatmeal Cookies $1.95 for 4 dozen cookies
Banana Bread $2.36 each loaf of bread
Peanut Butter Cookies $1.80 for 2 1/2 dozen
Apples with peanut butter $2.00 total cost
Bananas Nobody ate these, so saved the rest
Carrots & celery sticks & red pepper $2.00
Total Cost for snacks day/per person .27/day
Total for 3 days/per person .81
The number of people here varied a lot. As few as 2 for breakfast, and as many as 10 for dinner. So I will average it at 6 per meal. The snacks and desserts weren't all eaten and were shared over many days, so I am estimating that.
So the grand total for each person for 3 meals/3 days = $6.72 or $40.32 for a family of 6.
