May 15: Frittata; Fried Chicken, red beans and rice


Time to clear out some remaining vegetables from the refrigerator, and what better way than to make a frittata?

  • Trimmed leaks are $2.99 per pack, but we only used one, so 75c per serve
  • Two packs of fresh, sliced mushrooms cost $3.99 a pack, or $2 a serve
  • Five eggs were left, so all five went into the frittata – $1.25 per serve

Lunch today cost $4.00. It’s todays lead picture.


A revisit to the remaining Popeye’s chicken, with home made red beans and rice.

  • The 10 piece pack is on special for $13.99 ($15.20 with sales tax because it’s hot takeout), or $1.52 per piece. We served two pieces per serve for $3.04.
  • Each can of organic beans was 99c and we used three, or 50c per serve
  • In place of the andouille sausage used a smoked chicken sausage, which was way too high in salt: $2.49 for the sausage, or $1.25 per serve
  • Chicken broth $2.29 or 38c a serve
  • Onion, oil and garlic and seasonings about 15c per serve
  • And the rice: 33c a serve

Dinner tonight was $5.65 per serve.
