Maggie MacD. did speak thusly:

I think I paid about $10 for it. It was a fairly good sized one too.
Then again, the kitchen crew was about a dozen people so it wasn't
like we were busting the bank to feed the crew.
The point I guess is that it can be done inexpensively but still
provide something tasty and filling to keep the crew going.

Yes, well I was in need of it so if I was feeling it badly (and I
have a pretty good helping of stamina), then I am sure others needed it too.
It was also nice to provide the lunch leftovers to a few of our less
fortunate SCA brethren who could barely afford to attend the event.
