Mar 7: Yeros Wrap; Frogmore Stew


For lunch we went back to our gyro/yeros meat.

  • The fully cooked sliced gyro/yeros meat is $3.99 per 10oz pack. There are really four serves, so each serve is very slightly cheaper than the chicken, at $1.00 per serve.
  • The flatbread is 50c per serve
  • Hummus is $3.99 per container and we used about 1/6 or 33c per serve
  • We served 1/4 of the tabouli salad or 67c per serve.

Lunch today cost $2.50.


A return to a favorite that we haven’t had since last May:2 Frogmore Stew. Think southern boil with potatoes, shrimp, corn, etc, but where the stewing liquid is turned into a sauce.

The recipe serves six (at least). We keep the shrimp out of the soupy mix until each meal, cooking only enough for that meal to prevent the shrimp over-cooking when reheating.

  • Leaks cost $2.00 or 33c per serve
  • A pack of arugula is $3.50 or 58c per serve
  • Two cans of tomato juice instead of tomatoes and juice, $3.79 or 63c per serve
  • The fish stock was $3.99 or 67c per serve
  • A cup of white wine is about 80c or 15c per serve
  • We used about half of the $3.99 pack of potatoes, or 33c per serve
  • The corn cost $2.99 or 50c per serve
  • Andouille sausage cost $4.99 or 83c per serve
  • Shrimp cost $3.00 per very, very generous serve
  • We served with a par-baked garlic bread – $3.99 for the loaf (expensive for bread but delicious) or 67c per serve
  • Other ingredients add another 25c per serve.

Dinner tonight cost us $7.94 per serve.
