This really puts things into perspective:

And he's probably got enough leftovers to make another 100 sandwiches...........which reduces the cost per significantly.

Except for chickens.

Figure hmmm... one chicken per sandwich  ;D

I guess if you do all that to make one sandwich it's expensive, especially if he's figuring in the travel costs.  Farming and gardening puts us in the black every year.

I think the overall point he was getting at was just how involved the process is to do something "simple," in this case, making a sandwich.  Most people these days don't think of all that goes into producing the things that we consume.  Heck, it's even that way for us as preppers from time to time.

You're right.  I guess I don't see it as being that involved since I've lived this way all my life with the exception of time spent in school and a couple of jobs that took me away from the farm for a year or two here and there.
