Jan 15: Texas BBQ; Roast Chicken with Roast Cauliflower


For lunch we headed to The Swinging Door Texas BBQ Restaurant¬†with a friend. We’ve been here before and back then there were some inconsistencies in the meals, but today everything was great: mac and cheese, baked beans, collard greens and the tri tip, pulled pork and brisket all excellent.

All for a very reasonable $15.00 per person with tax.


For dinner we decided to finish last week’s supermarket chicken by heating the leg and thigh portions we had left. We served with roast cauliflower and a mushroom gravy.

Frankly, it was all a bit bland other than the cauliflower, which was tasty and a bit interesting.

  • The chicken was $2.50 per serve
  • The organic cauliflower gave us three serves for $3.60 or $1.20 per serve
  • The mushrooms were $3.99 or $2.00 per serve
  • The gravy base was $1.79 or 80c per serve.

Dinner tonight cost $6.50 per serve.
