Apr 25: In and Out Burger; Organic Bean Pasta with Cheese sauce


Another Burbank Monday and foodie Philip was at In and Out for a Double Double Animal Style as usual.

  • Double Double is $4.03 with tax.


We decided to try something new: Trader Joe’s Organic Black Bean Rotini with a cheddar cheese sauce.

This was a mistake. The flavor of the bean pasta is fine, as is the texture, but it colored the cheese sauce a very unappealing brown-gray, which is why there is no photo today! Perhaps with a puttanesca sauce it might be okay, or in a salad, although why not just put in black beans?

  • The black bean rotini was $2.99 a pack, or $1.00 per serve
  • The cheddar works out to $1.00 a serve
  • Frozen peas add another 20c to each serve.

Tonight’s dinner was $2.20 per serve. Tasty but visually very unappealing.
