Nov 25: The Country Deli; Butternut Squash, Bacon and Smokey Cheese ‘Rellenos


We had to go to Lowes, which takes us right past The Country Deli, so that’s where we had lunch.

Lunch at The Country Deli averages $21 per serve with tax and tip.


Tonight we had the rest of the butternut squash, bacon and smokey cheese version of Pioneer Woman’s Easy Chilli Rellenos.

  • The pre-cut butternut squash was $1.99 for a 12oz pack or $1 per serve
  • We used half the $2.84 pack of ‘Dutch smoked cheese’ (not Gouda!) or 71c per serve
  • Eggs are 50c each or $1.25 per serve
  • We used bacon ends and pieces where the pack was $3.49 but we used about 1/3 or 58c per serve
  • A pint of half and half is $1.49 and half was used or 37c per serve
  • Add 5c for seasoning.

Tonight’s dinner cost $3.96 per serve. The squash, bacon and cheese is an excellent combination.
