Feb 15: Sushi; Asian Peanut Noodles


Since shopping needed to be done, and we have less and less in our apartment each day, we opted for supermarket sushi for lunch again today.

Today’s sushi cost $12.78 or $6.39 a serve.


On tonight’s menu is a new recipe: Asian Peanut Noodles. We dropped the cilantro, carrot and sugar. Greg chose ponzu over soy because of it’s citrus overtones. We found the recipe made three serves.

It’s a really tasty salad. The crisp fresh vegetables offset the slight cloyiness of the peanut butter based dressing. In hindsight it needed the fresh lime juice for a little more acid, and we probably should have substituted mint for the cilantro.

  • The stir fry noodles were $3.79 and we used the whole packet or $1.27 a serve
  • The peanut butter was $3.99 and we used about 1/3 in the recipe or 44c a serve
  • Our ginger came free from a friend clearing her pantry before leaving town for an extended period.
  • The bell pepper was $1.49 or 50c a serve
  • The cucumber was 46c or 15c per serve
  • Scallions (spring onions) were $1.29 or 43c a serve
  • Add 25c a serve for the seasonings

Dinner tonight cost $3.04 a serve.
