Sep 4: Asada Burrito; Mushroom Barley Risotto


We decided to head down off the hill to greater Chatsworth and pick ups a burrito. This time we tried the Asada, which was pretty good.

The burrito costs $5.50 with tax.


With so much meat over the last couple of days, including lunch, we opted for a (mostly) meat free dinner. Well, there was some bacon.

The recipe makes a good six serves.

  • Two packs of fresh, sliced mushrooms cost $3.99 a pack, or $1.33 a serve
  • The pearl barley is $4.89 for a 28 oz bag, or 61c per serve
  • Two cups of broth is half a $1.99 carton or 17c per serve
  • The packet of parmesan cost $6.99 but we used about 1/8 for three servings, or 29c per serve
  • Add another 20c for onion, oil and herbs.

Dinner today cost $2.60 per serve.
