So anyway, because we had about 2 kilos of leftover sausage from the new students' barbecue on Friday, I cooked up a big pot of pasta sauce (from scratch!) and we had a huge home-cooked dinner party thing (pasta, garlic bread, creamed spinach) for fifteen people. I made food for 15 people! And for under $20!! (Well, the sausage was free, but hey.)
I can now say that should I ever have 13 children, I know how to feed them all for under 20 bucks. And five of them were boys who ate mountains of pasta bigger than my head. And then we had ice-cream and played Balderdash. Fun!
