Looking for Breakfast

The kids have been complaining that there's "nothing to eat" in the house. In truth, the house is so over-stocked with food that anyone who ever read The Poisonwood Bible would blush with shame. The problem is, it's mostly food that you have to actually cook - chickens and roasts and bags of potatoes and so on. So I'm trying an experiment, keeping in mind that I'm going to be out of town tonight and again starting Wednesday. I gave each of the kids a $50 gift card and told them to go out and purchase 3 days' worth of meals for the family. This will not be "their" food, but food which must be prepared and served in a communal setting.

It will be interesting to see what comes home. I'm reasonably certain ice cream will be involved.
