We had a very satisfying dinner cooked in a clay pot this evening.
|Tender & moist|
|A whole clove of garlic roasts in the clay pot, then is combined with butter to top the veggies.|
After dinner chit chat, Daughter C and I got down to shelling pecans.
We had been given, by Mr. Big Foods Mom, a 5# bag (that’s 5 pounds) of Texas Pecans, cracked. Mr. Big Food’s Mom paid $22.50 for this bag of cracked pecans.
|We got about 2.5 pounds of pecan halves.|
Here’s where it gets interesting.
A 4-6 ounce package of pecan halves at the Piglet goes for about $4.00. How many ounces are in 2.5 pounds?
About $160 worth.
“Wealth” is a concept that is underappreciated.
