Aug 31: Gyro Wrap; Seared Scallops with Avocado, Mango & Arugula Salad


A return to the gyro meat wrap, and again with cucumber because it adds a nice, wet crunch to the wrap.

  • The fully cooked sliced gyro/yeros meat is $3.99 per 10oz pack. There are really four serves, so each serve is very slightly cheaper than the chicken, at $1.00 per serve.
  • The flatbread is 50c per serve
  • Hummus is $3.99 per container and we used about 1/6 or 33c per serve
  • A box of Persian cucumbers was $2.49 for five, and we used half, or 13c per serve
  • We served 1/4 of the tabouli salad or 67c per serve.

Lunch today cost $2.43.


On a hot summer night, it’s hard to find a combination that’s tasty and doesn’t generate too much heat. Pan seared scallops with a butter ponzu sauce accompanied by a tasty Avocado, Mango and Arugula salad , seemed like it might fit the bill. No ponzu, so soy substituted. Ponzu is better.

  • The pack of frozen scallops was $14.99 or $7.50 per serve
  • A mangos was 99c or 50c per serve
  • Two avocados were $1.67 or 84c per serve
  • Add 25c for butter and soy.

Dinner tonight was, as this dish always is, extremely tasty and cost $9.09 per serve.
