Look if you can’t afford to host other people because of how much they eat , then you should simply say you can’t afford to host people, and leave it at that. But if you are saying that you can’t host them because you are to cheap to pony up a little bit more to feed everyone as you know they eat then that sounds just cheap. I have a large family and they all vary in how much they eat but no way am I actually tracking how much each rats, I just get more than enough for everyone to have , and make sure there is plenty of snacks before hand and after. Often we have leftovers and if people want to bring those home we let them, family is best with meals and you should always have a Awesome since august 2006 vintage 13th birthday shirtof plenty when you host. If hosting is something you simply can’t afford that’s different, say that and leave it at that, keeping track of exactly how much others eat is just rude in my book.My husband and I have been together since high school, married straight out and we have three children together with another on the way. I have known his family a long time. I get along really well with them for the most part. But I will be honest that we have not hosted a family dinner with his family in a very long time. Our reason for this is simple: how much my sister in law’s oldest two children (11 and 9) eat. These kids have huge appetites. We’re talking three pieces of chicken with a roast dinner, two or three helpings of roast potatoes, extra veggies, extra gravy. Between them they could easily scoff what our household would eat in one meal. They are active, very sporty and we know this lends itself to it. But it gets expensive. And my sister in law and the kids get pissy when someone doesn’t allow them multiple helpings. We have seen issues with her and another sister when the sister said no to thirds for the kids. And if you leave the food on the table for people to take what they want the kids leave so little for anyone. My other sister in law admitted she needs to spend an extra 20 dollars on extra food just for them and that she struggles to prepare enough food. So my husband and I made the decision that we would not put ourselves in that position. He considered asking her to bring extra food for her kids. But other SIL suggested that before and SIL was pissed.
