Apr 13: Chicken Wrap; Fish Pie


Chicken wraps! Probably our most common lunch, although we do vary it somewhat. Instead of hummus we had a smokey Roasted Eggplant Puree instead of hummus. It was good.

  • Split four ways, the $9.99 chicken is $2.50 per serve, or $1.25 today.
  • One quarter of the $2.74 salad is 69c
  • The flatbread is 50c
  • The Eggplant Puree is $3.99 for 19oz, and we used about 1/5 of the jar, or 40c per serve.

Lunch today: $2.84 per serve


We were atypically shooting a Lunch with Philip and Greg at dinner, at home. Our guest hailed originally from the UK, so foodie Greg sought to find something quintessentially English, and then do a good version of it!

Having had some very ordinary fish pies in English a couple of years ago, it was easy to improve on it. Being fans of the Two Fat Ladies a natural choice was Jenifer’s Fish Pie.

Our guest said it was the best fish pie she’d ever had!

We made some variations, leaving out the smoked fish because we couldn’t obtain any. The recipe makes four generous serves.

  • The potatoes were $1.64 or 41c per serve
  • For the firm fleshed fish, Greg used Kroger Wild Caught Pacific Cod. The 40 oz pack costs $16.89 but only 8 oz was used (two filets) or $1.69 a serve.
  • Sockeye salmon $6.30 or $1.67 per serve
  • Shrimp cost $3.98 or $1.00 per serve
  • 1 lb of baby spinach $5.49 or $1.37 per serve
  • Onion adds 12c per serve
  • The milk was $1.69 and 3/4 was used, or 32c per serve
  • Hard boiled pastured eggs are 50c per serve
  • Butter, seasoning and spinach add another 44c per serve.

Tonight’s “best fish pie ever” dinner cost us $7.52 a serve.
