Oct 2: Supermarket Sushi; Beef Short Ribs with Goats Cheese Polenta


For lunch today we had supermarket sushi from Whole Foods, which was pretty good.

Lunch today cost $9.34 per serve.


We had Beef Short Ribs remaining from an earlier Prather Ranch delivery. We’d been postponing cooking them because a braise usually means an oven, and an oven means heat. Finally it was cool enough to give them a try.

We paired them with a goat’s cheese polenta mix and broccolini for some green.

  • Two pounds of Short Ribs cost $17.12 with bones, or $8.56 per serve
  • The broccolini cost $2.50 or $1.25 per serve
  • The 10 grain ‘hot cereal’ is $5.99 for a 25oz pack, but we used about 1/8 or 38c per serve.
  • Two carrots cost 61c or 31c per serve
  • 4oz of goat’s cheese cost $3.99 or $2.00 a serve
  • A cup of red wine costs 80c or 40c per serve
  • Bacon ends cost $4.99 for the container, but this recipe used about 1/2 of that, or 50c per serve.

Dinner tonight cost $13.40 for a very generous serve.
