Aug 8: Smoked Salmon Bagel; Meatloaf with Gorgonzola Gnocchi


Although it was a Burbank Monday, various scheduling changes made it necessary to ‘brown bag’ it. Why not a smoked salmon bagel?

  • Smoked salmon $5.99 for the 4oz pack or $3 a serve
  • The pack of six onion bagels is $1.99 or 33c per serve
  • Cream cheese is about 60c a serve
  • 1 lb of Persian cucumbers was $1.99, of which one went into this meal, or 12c per serve
  • Add 5c for capers.

Lunch today cost $4.10 per serve.


When your meat delivery from last month still includes ground beef, why not meatloaf? This time paired with Gnocchi in a cream and gorgonzola sauce, with asparagus and peas. We substituted blue cheese for gorgonzola because we had it available.

The meatloaf and gnocchi will do two meals: four serves in total.

  • 2 lbs of dry aged ground beef were $18.08 or $4.52 per serve.
  • Onion and seasonings add 25c per serve
  • The gnocchi was $1.68 from Trader Joes, or 42c per serve
  • Chopped and trimmed asparagus was $3.99 or $1.00 per serve
  • Peas were $1.39 or 35c per serve
  • Blue cheese comes in a $6.99 tub, but we used so little, it comes to 22c a serve.

Dinner tonight cost $6.34 a serve.
