Actually it’s closer to two tons. Ryan went to an auction for work and bid on what he thought was one pallet of orecchiette pasta. He won it for $100. A pretty good deal. We thought we’d be set on pasta for a while.
“A while” was right. Ryan went to claim the lot this week. It wasn’t one pallet—it was eight. We are now the proud owners of 3500 pounds of pasta. So you don’t have to do the math, that’s less than 3¢ per pound.
(Incidentally, it wasn’t all orecchiette. The lot included some small shells, too. Those crazy auctioneers.)
