We spent $651.47 on food for December 13th through the 31st for our family of 10. Some of the food we ate we already had in the pantry and freezer but we also bought meat on sale which is still in the freezer. My two oldest sons eat lunch at school so they were not here for breakfast or lunch from the 13th through the 17th.
I kept track of breakfast, lunch and dinner but I will only list dinners. The children ate pancakes, oatmeal, malt-o-meal, grits, or potatoes and eggs for breakfast most mornings. Lunch is usually leftovers or sandwiches. For snacks they ate popcorn, bread and butter, nuts, etc.
