Nov 1: Smoked Salmon Roll; Bacon and Black Bean Chili


Since it turned out our onion bagels had gone off while we were away, we used the last two par-baked rolls to support some smoked salmon, cream cheese, cherry tomatoes and capers.

  • Six par baked rustic rolls were $3.29 or 55c per serve.
  • Smoked salmon $5.99 for the 4oz pack or $3.00 a serve
  • Cream cheese is about 60c a serve
  • Add 5c for capers.
  • The two cherry tomatoes have already been accounted for.

Lunch today cost $4.10 for smoked salmon!


Because we were off to a movie premiere Foodie Greg cooked chili ahead of time, so we could simply reheat and eat.

The bacon, black bean and beef chili is great and makes five serves.

  • Bacon ends cost $4.99 for the container, but this recipe used about 1/2 of that, or 50c per serve
  • Onion and garlic – about 5c a serve
  • The beef we used is expensive – pasture raised, dry aged ground beef from our monthly meat delivery – at $9.08 or $1.82 a serve
  • Spices – about 12c a serve
  • Diced fire roasted tomatoes are $2.19 the can, or 44c per serve
  • Tomato paste was 89c or 18c a serve
  • The beans were 99c a can, or 20c a serve
  • Cheese was 55c per serve
  • Sour cream cost $3.99 but we used 1/4 on tonight’s meal, or 50c per serve.

All up dinner cost us $4.36 for a very filling serve.
