This would cost me about six bucks at Aldis or less, only i would not have been able to get Cilantro. which was $1.69, so w/o that it would have been $14.18 and we have no tax on food so it is what it is.
Isn't it CRAZY!!! I can't believe how much I am spending on food for us these days. I think Grandparents got a good appreciation of what we are spending on the ...um....eating machine.
We laughed and said that when we come up this summer if MIL is going to serve pies she needs to have one for each grandson to eat all to themselves.
