Q. My sister is having our entire family over for a Holiday meal this year. She is a very organized person and has assigned each of us something to bring to contribute to the food table. She always seems to know exactly how much of each food item is needed according to the amount of people attending. I have been assigned a tray that would include fresh fruits and vegetables as well as items from the bakery. I want to be certain that I am getting the correct amount of food requested; not only because my sister expects it but also because I have a small budget to work with. How can I be sure that I get the correct amount/weight of the items and that they are accurately priced? D.O., Bristol.
