And Then Things Became REALLY Interesting...
Tonight I was working on menu planning for next week, deciding which meals sounded yummy and their corresponding point values. And something kept nagging me...we have too many blue/green points - you know, the points used for canned and frozen foods (I know that you knew what blue/green points were used for because you are all rationing experts now). 192 points is too many - I have a hard time using that many per week and that doesn't seem right.
So I went back to my research I did during the initial phase of the project and looked at my notes.
And I compared it with my research I did last weekend at the Kansas Historical Society.
My suspicions were correct. Apparently, there was an error in my original notes...we do not have 192 blue/green points per week.
We have...are you ready?
We have 48 blue/green points per week. That's it.
Take a look at the handy-dandy point chart again, my friends.
Things just got substantially more interesting.
