Day 5 – making (a lot of) bacon for the homeless
So today wraps up the final day of meals for the Hunger Action Week challenge. I’ve just gotten home from a marathon session of hanging out with the guys and making insane amounts of bacon for tomorrow’s pancake breakfast for the homeless at the Nickelsville community. Making bacon for 75-100 people is a much larger endeavor than it appears at first glance… but it’s a lot easier when it’s done with 9 of your friends over grilled brats, beer and poker.
I’m a bit tired at the moment because it’s pretty late, but today’s budget looks great–in large part because of the leftover curry which I had for lunch.
I’ll blog about the breakfast at Nickelsville after we’ve had a chance to serve the meal and get to know the people living there a bit better. For now, I need to get to bed… pancake-making commences in 4 1/2 hours…
Honey Bunches of Oats with Almonds – $0.50
milk – $0.50
leftover Japanese curry and rice – $0.00(!!)
1.5 bratwursts – $1.19
1 bun – $0.31
chips – $0.50
1 beer – $1.25
(I’m not going to include the scotch we had because dinner was officially over, and it was really part of the poker game… I hope that isn’t cheating…)
