Those were the good old days
In 1909, it took just $828 a month to serve 2600 meals at the White House. Those were the good old days. Who dares to tally the cost of feeding one’s self today? I one time figured I could feed two adults for $7.00 a day which equals about $210 a month for conservative rations. Only 8 austere shoppers could survive on $828. Think about 2600 ‘gourmet’ meals in 1909. What does this say about a century of progress in America?
