Pecan Math

We had a very satisfying dinner cooked in a clay pot this evening.

Tender & moist

A whole clove of garlic roasts in the clay pot, then is combined with butter to top the veggies.

After dinner chit chat, Daughter C and I got down to shelling pecans.

We had been given, by Mr. Big Foods Mom, a 5# bag (that's 5 pounds) of Texas Pecans, cracked. Mr. Big Food's Mom paid $22.50 for this bag of cracked pecans.

We got about 2.5 pounds of pecan halves.
Here's where it gets interesting. 

A 4-6 ounce package of pecan halves at the Piglet goes for about $4.00. How many ounces are  in 2.5 pounds?

About $160 worth. 

"Wealth" is a concept that is underappreciated.
