May 17: Chicken wrap; Lamb Sausages, roast fennel, semi-dried tomatoes and dolmas


Chicken wrap time again! Back to the smaller chicken and with a change to the ready-to-mix salad rather than a premixed small one. The salad kit provides more salad for the dollar, and covers more meals.

  • Supermarket roast chicken is $7.99 and we get four portions from it, with one breast split into two wraps, or $1.00 per serve.
  • The salad kit is $3.49 and we used about 1/6th split over two serves, or 32c per serve.
  • The flatbread is 25c per serve
  • Hummus is $3.99 per container and we used about 1/12 or 17c per serve.

Lunch today cost $1.74 per serve.


Tonight we had lamb sausages, home-made semi-dried tomatoes, packaged dolma’s and roasted fennel with feta. The feta substitutes for the parmesan in the original recipe.

  • The lamb sausages which were perfect and not over seasoned so the lamb flavor came through, and cooking on a flattop grilled them to perfection:  $17.26 for six, or $5.75 per serve
  • Roast fennel was an experiment because one of the semiSerious Foodies is sensitive to aniseed flavors, but the roasting softens those flavors and ups the sweetness. $2.96 for three bulbs or 99c per serve
  • Plum tomatoes were $2.26 or 38c per serve
  • The tin of dolma’s is $2.49 or 83c per serve.

Dinner tonight was really delicious and cost $7.95 per serve. The lamb sausages were perfect, the roast fennel equally so, and while the tomatoes were a little more than ‘semi-dry’ they still tasted good.
