More homemade school lunches, with cost estimates
It was difficult to estimate the cost of the soup since the stock and much of the chicken came from the carcasses of 2 organic chickens that we roasted. I estimated $3 worth of chicken for the 5 servings of soup, probably in excess of the actual cost.
Lavender requested to make her own lunch twice this week, and that's why the humble sandwiches appear.
Average cost of these lunches = $1.39
Average savings per day over school lunch = $0.96
