Apr 10: Smoked salmon; Corned Beef, Crash Hot Potatoes and Beet Sauerkraut


For lunch today we had wild caught smoked salmon and avocado on an English muffin.

  • The wild caught smoked salmon was $5.99 or $3.00 a serve
  • An English Muffin is 50c
  • The avocado works out to 50c per serve.

Today’s gourmet lunch cost $4.00 per serve.


Tonight’s dinner is a play on the traditional ‘Irish’ boiled dinner of corned beef, boiled cabbage and boiled potatoes. Except we’re swapping out the boiled potatoes for Crash Hot Potatoes, and substituting a beet sauerkraut for the cabbage.

Technically we’re staying within the original: potatoes are boiled before being baked, and sauerkraut is cabbage.

Because the corned beef is organic, it has not been treated with sodium nitrate, so it has a more gray appearance than meat treated with nitrates.

  • The corned beef came from Whole Foods and was $25.80. We used half for this meal, or $6.45 a serve
  • I allowed 55c for potatoes
  • Cream, butter and flour run another 50c per serve
  • The Wildbrine Red Beet and Red Cabbage salad┬áis $6.99 for the container. We used half or $1.75 a serve.

Tonight’s dinner was a great riff on the standard boiled meal and cost us $9.25 per serve.
