May 5: Steak and Ale Pie; Roast Chicken, Rice and Madras Lentils


An overcast and cold day – for Los Angeles anyway – was perfect pie weather, and a Trader Joe’s Steak and Ale Pie hit the spot perfectly.

  • The two pack is $6.49 or $3.25 per serve.


With the probability of friends dropping by, but with little control over time, we ended up putting together a tasty meal in 15 minutes after they left. No cooking from scratch, other than the basmati rice, but still tasty and warming.

  • Split four ways, the $9.99 chicken is $2.50 a serve for the leg and thigh
  • The Madras Lentils were $3.99 for the pack or $2.00 per serve
  • The basmati rice cooks in three minutes in the pressure cooker and is 50c per serve.

Dinner tonight was perfectly serviceable and $5.00 per serve.
