I have two young boys, inching ever closer to the teenage years, aka, the eating years.
I am wondering how on earth I will keep enough food in this house when they are teens since four days ago our fruit supply included:
a quart of strawberries
3 pounds of pears
3 pounds of apples
5 pounds of clementines
3 pounds of bananas
=nearly 20 pounds of fruit!
Let me preface the picture below with the warning: my boys *love* fruit and I am all too happy to help provide them with ample opportunities to fuel this love. I know we go through fruit fairly quickly, but it hit me today how quickly and I had to take a picture of what our 20 pounds of fruit looks like four days later:
We still have our after-school snack and dinner for today, so I am guessing by day's end, we will have pretty much depleted our fruit supply...in four days.
Milk, eggs, bread and snacks go quickly in our home too, but I was amazed at our fruit consumption. At this rate I have decided we probably need to plant some fruit trees in our backyard, for this will be the only way to keep a steady supply in our home about 10 years from now.
