Jun 21: Supermarket Sushi; Watermelon Salad


Another serving of sushi from Whole Foods, who seem to have changed provider since our last visit.

  • Spicy Tuna Roll: $8.69 or $4.35 per serve
  • Cucumber Roll: $6.39 or $3.20 per serve

Lunch today cost $7.55 per serve.


With the hot weather we’ve been having, it was a welcome return to a favorite: Nigel Lawson’s watermelon, feta and black olive salad. It’s a summer regular and very, very good.

  • At $4.99 the watermelon is more than enough for about eight serves, or 63c per serve
  • Feta comes in a $6.99 tub and we used half, or about 70c per serve
  • Pitted olives come in $2.99 jars and one quarter was used, or 38c per serve
  • The red onion is 52c or 13c per serve
  • About $1 of the $1.29 pack of mint was used, or 25c per serve
  • Olive oil and seasonings add another 20c per serve.

Dinner tonight (and tomorrow night) cost $2.33 per serve. It’s an excellent dish and every time we serve it for someone, they want the recipe.
