Reminds me of something a camp director told me a few years ago. The cook
who cooked for the staff doubled all the recipes. That is, if it said
"serves 10 people" she figured it would make 5 servings for the staff.
Staff, of course, being mostly high-school & college-age young men who were
on the go from 6AM to 10PM
