As a Stay-At-Home-Mom for the last almost-6 years, I finally decided that it was time that I bring home the bacon.
15 pounds worth....
6 packs of hot dogs.
15 packages of cold cuts; turkey, chicken, ham, roast beef
8 packs of Philadelphia cream cheese.
4 packs of sausages and kielbasa.
For a whopping total of $165 and 50 pounds. Which fit perfectly spread out in 2 different bags... frozen in 3 coolers... surrounded by 10 packs of blue ice... arriving here STILL frozen after 24 hours of traveling.
It's not that we can't get most of these things here... it's just that most of these items cost an exorbitant amount of money. One package of 6 slices of turkey costs $15. No kidding. And Philly cream cheese? $10 for 1 block!
Next trip back, we're schlepping a Butterball Turkey. Maybe 2.
