Feb 12: Fried Eggs on Toast with Vegemite; Pot Roast


We both felt like something ‘eggy’ so we decided on fried eggs on the sprouted multigrain toast with a smear of vegemite, which brings a little umami and salt to the dish.

  • The toast is 39c per two slice serve
  • Pastured eggs are 50c each, or $1.00 per serve
  • Add 5c for vegemite.

Lunch today cost $1.44 per serve.


For dinner we used a cross rib steak for Pioneer Woman’s Pot Roast which we’ve enjoyed in the past. This is not a great cut of meat so marinating or slow braising in a pot roast is a great way to get the best from the protein. We had a roast of just over two pounds, which we duly consumed among the three of us, although Philip had a double serve.

We served with cauliflower mash.

  • The roast was $21.37 or $5.34 per serve
  • Onions are 20c per serve
  • The carrots were 69c or 35c per serve
  • One cup of red wine is around $1.33 or 67c a serve
  • Two cups of broth is half a $1.99 carton or 50c per serve
  • The mushrooms were $1.99 or $1 a serve
  • The Rosemary came from our own plant
  • Add another 15c for oil, seasoning and Thyme
  • The organic cauliflower cost $4.20 but we got six serves, so 70c per serve.

Tonight’s dinner cost $8.91 for the pot roast meal.
