Jan 25: Smoked salmon; Red Beans and Rice with Egg


Wild caught smoked salmon on an English muffin with cream cheese. Because it’s a 4 oz pack, it’s a generous serve of smoked salmon each.

  • Smoked salmon – normally $6.99 but Greg bought it for $5.99 on special or $3.00 a serve
  • The English muffin is 50c a serve
  • Cream cheese is about 60c a serve.

Lunch today was $4.10 a serve.


Something else was planned, but we ended up spending more time than expected finding a flooring contractor, and went for leftovers instead. Two serves of the red beans and rice, with a fried egg on top.

  • Onion, oil and garlic and seasonings about 15c per serve
  • Each can of organic beans was 99c and we used three, or 50c per serve
  • We used then other pack of andouille sausage from Greg’s double purchase: $4.40 or 73c a serve
  • Chicken broth $2.29 or 38c a serve
  • The rice: 33c a serve
  • One organic egg, 50c a serve.

Tonight’s quick dinner – the slowest part was cooking the rice – cost us $2.59 each serve. I’d have  liked an extra egg, but we only had two to share between us!
