Re: The Blog Below


While I do think this is really interesting, I also find it really annoying.

I mean, yeah, I eat some of the things the Revis family eats (pizza, Ragu spaghetti sauce, cereal), but, I've also been known to eat a piece of fruit now and then.

It's like the creators of this feature went into a grocery store and just waited until they found a cart without produce of any kind, and no less than 2 cases of Diet Coke, and thought to themselves, This is our family.

Perhaps this is what an average family eats. However, if this is the case, not only am I not average, but I don't know anyone who is.

But, maybe you are. Maybe you look at that photo and think, yeah, that looks about right.

If so, lay off the Burger King* and eat an apple, for crying out loud.

*I'm a big fan of the chicken crowns at the burger king.

  2. SERIOUSLY, who the hell spends over 300 dollars a week on groceries??? I bet you that my mom fed a family of 6 for that a month. I spend about 40 pounds a week on groceries and that's including the rare times we eat out. And that is three meals a day for two people (okay five meals a day for me, but I have a good excuse).

    I find the fact that I spend NO money on booze each week makes my paycheck go further. Although, Darren is consuming a lot of DC these days.

    SO interesting....and fun to look at the different pictures. Especially the UK one and the US one. I must admit that the US one looked DELIGHTFUL! :)

  3. Sarah: Okay, okay, I did see the grapes. They were behind the fruit loops, right?

    Lindsey: I love how up in arms you are about this. I love to think of what I'd be eating if I spent $300 at the grocery store. I can tell you that whatever it was would be covered in gold.
    Since starting at 30 Rock, James has been eating two meals a day there, which has helped our budget considerably. We used to spend a fortune on cereal.
    p.s. I also eat about 5 meals a day, with no excuse whatsoever.

  4. If I had 300 dollars a week to spend on groceries I'd be eating whale eggs and veal wrapped veal.

    And are klondike bars a meal? Because I might have eaten 10 meals yesterday.

  5. James, whales are mammals. I've told you this a dozen times.

  6. james, i'd like to see you try to get a whale egg, because indeed, they are mammals. my diet consists of PB&J, chocolate, apples, and pete's leftover scraps. Consequently I eat a bit more than 3 meals a day, and unlike Lindsey, I have no excuse.
