Nov 24: ‘Tomato Soup’; Turkey Thanksgiving Dinner


For lunch we had some of the remaining liquid from the Cioppino with a par baked sourdough roll covered in melted cheddar: tomato soup with a cheese toasty!

  • The cheddar is $5.99 for the 8oz block or $1.13 per 1.5 oz serve
  • Six par baked rustic rolls were $3.29 or 55c per serve
  • The cioppino liquid is about $1.43 per serve.

Lunch today cost $3.11.


We had Thanksgiving dinner with friends, as you do.

We prepared a roasted cauliflower and brussel sprouts dish, which was pretty good.

Our contribution cost $3.30 split across the two of us. With it we had the full Thanksgiving spread.

Foodie Philip carved the turkey using an Alton Brown tip: cut the breast out and then slice it vertically, across the ‘grain’ of the muscle fibers. That makes the breast taste much more juicy and tender.
