So, here's the menu:
Triple Play Tropical Mock Cocktail- (Pineapple, Orange and Lemonade)
You're wondering how cheap can this be. Let me illuminate:
The main thing we bought today were chicken ($9), orange and pineapple juice cans ($4). The rest, we had in the house. We spent $13, and fed four families.
The FREE dessert were 9 cups of Hunt's Chocolate Pudding, and cut up angel food cake. Layered in low clear drinking glasses for each person. When everyone was ready for dessert, I topped each glass with two small scoops of any flavor ice cream and low-fat whipped cream. Yes, we had all of these in the house, repurposed for company. Enjoyed by three families. Plus, it's healthier, too, since pudding is low-fat if not fat-free, angel food cake is low-fat and two small scoops of ice cream is less than half of what you get at your local ice cream place.
Clever, huh? It was a nice lesson on living on less and being creative with what you have available. The moral is, if you stock up on what you can live with, you can live with your stock and live well.

He just did this; he gave the missionaries ride to their next appointment right after dinner since their bikes wouldn't get them there on time. I thanked him for it.
