My part of the expense on this was < $5.  The ham was probably on the 
post-christmas sales, thus it was also "quite a bargain" (PROBABLY).

And -having- to sit down and eat was a very smart/good thing for Dragon to 
insist on.  When dinner came on we weren't bug-eyed and twitching, but 
mostly (MOSTLY) relaxed and ready to get things going.
