Small Boys....BIG Appetites

We picked up three more grandchildren this afternoon and I'm not sure how we are going to feed them, especially Gavin.....age 6 3/4.
It was supper time when we got home and all were hungry. I made quick pizza "cups" and a banana salad. Gavin ate two pizzas and salad. Then about 5 minutes later he came in and said, "Grandma, can I have some cereal? It's my favorite and I didn't have breakfast today". haha So he had a big bowl of cereal. 5 minutes later, "Grandma, I'm still hungry". Okay, so we had two small helpings of applesauce AND 3 frozen oreo cookies (LaVern's stash). Not much later, "Grandma, I'm STILL hungry". The kid must have a big appetite. So we just finished up with graham crackers with strawberry cream cheese. Will see if that gets him to bedtime.
We had stopped at the grocery store before picking up the kids and $132.00 later (LaVern with a look of shock) I told him maybe we would get through a week with these groceries! After this evening........I'm hoping that we will make it a week! I think I heard some comment from LaVern about if we still had kids at home we would have an "Amish garden" and the kids would be out there tending it!

Hollow legs. I feel your pain! Jan doesn't even flinch at the grocery bills anymore. Four teens in the house is a killer on the food budget. Have fun with the boys!
