When our teenage grandson was still here, he most always brought friends home with him, as the other "mothers' were working. They'd come in the door after football practice asking "G-ma" what there was to eat. Boys that age can't be satisfied with raw vegies and dip. They might eat some on the side, but they want bulk!
Chips, sodas, lemonade and chocolate milk were a must, but that was just a start. When I had balogna, ham or sliced turkey from the deli, 3 boys would easily go through a whole loaf of bread. They loved the frozen Totino's Pizza Rolls
, and I always kept cheap frozen pizzas on hand. Sometimes I'd spread flour tortillas with re-fried beans and grated cheese, pop them in the oven until the cheese was melted, and cut them in bite size pieces.
My husband always has venison salami made from part of his deer kill, and the boys could go through half a stick of that, a half pound of American cheese and a box of Ritz crackers in no time.
The ubiquitous blue box of macaroni and cheese was always a hit, especially if I cut up a a couple of hot dogs in it.
I did get them to eat a few healthier things...such as bananas, white seedles grapes, and chunks of melon, especially in the summer, after football practice. Surprisingly, most of them also liked cottage cheese, with just salt & pepper.
That sure was a good time.
