Jan 6: Burrito; “Ultimate” Beef Stroganoff with Egg Noodles

Lunch

A shopping trip with a side trip to our favorite Mexican place for the first burrito since returning from Australia.

A burrito is $5.50.

Dinner

Time for another experiment, and an opportunity to use up some of the accumulating Prather Ranch meat in our refrigerator, even though we canceled the December delivery. Tonight we tried a variation on a classic with “ultimate” beef stroganoff with egg noodles.

This variation was pretty good.

  • The top sirloin steak from Prather Ranch is almost 13oz for $11.43 or $5.72 per serve
  • Chives were $1.29 and we used half, or 38c per serve
  • Mushrooms were $1.79 or 90c per serve
  • The Manish wide noodles were $3.29 but we only used half or 83c per serve
  • Chicken stock was $2.00 or 50c per serve
  • A packet of frozen pearl onions is $1.69 for a 16oz pack, but we used a quarter, or 21c per serve
  • Sour cream cost $3.99 but we used 1/4 on tonight’s meal, or 50c per serve.
  • 1 cups dry white wine – about 75c or 38c per serve
  • Add 45c per serve for the other condiments.

Dinner tonight cost $9.87, was tasty and very filling.
