Feb 28: Bacon and Tomato Sandwich; Roast Chicken with Edamame and Ginger Pilaf


Because we could, we repeated the bacon and tomato from a BLT on a very nice sprouted multigrain bread from Trader Joe’s with some supermarket tabouli.

  • The sprouted wholemeal is $3.49 a loaf with 18 slices, or 39c per two slice sandwich
  • The bacon was $6.99 for 12 slices, and we used 1.5 per serve, or 88c
  • We used one kumato per serve or 58c
  • We served 1/4 of the tabouli salad or 67c per serve
  • Eggless mayo add another 15c per serve.

Lunch today cost $2.67 and was pretty good.


The remaining roast chicken (thighs and drumsticks) needed to be used and what better to accompany it than an Edamame and Ginger Pilaf?

Greg created a dressing from tahini and labne with a little water and oil to thin it out and a sprinkle of salt. It was definitely unusual, but really tasty with the chicken and pilaf.

  • The chicken is $2.50 per serve
  • An onion adds 15c per serve
  • Rice adds 62c per serve
  • Ginger and spices add another 15c per serve
  • Labne adds 25c per serve
  • The organic tahini came from Trader Joes and is $3.49 for a 10oz jar, or 52c per serve.

Dinner tonight cost $4.19 and was pretty good.
