Each package of lunch meat (for instance) says how many it serves.
Divide that number by 2 to find out how many it REALLY serves. Divide by
4 to find out how man it _feeds_.
For qwik'n'dirty estimates: 1 of the 2.5 oz lunchmeat packages makes 1
sandwich. If you're adding a slice of cheese, 3 such packages makes 4
sandwiches. If you're adding cheese AND lettuce, you may get 5
sandwiches from 3 packages, but don't count on it with growing boys.
