Mar 10: Smoked Salmon on Onion Bagel; Pasta Risotto with Peas and Pancetta


A nice sunny so we toasted an onion bagel each, and filled it with kumato, shallot, capers and smoked salmon. Delicious.

  • An onion bagel is 50c
  • Salmon was $5.99 or $3.00 a serve
  • Add 25c for  labne, shallot and capers.

Lunch today was generous and delicious for $3.75 per serve.


A new recipe for us: Pasta Risotto with Peas and Pancetta featuring orzo – a pasta shaped like rice.

  • 6 oz. of cubed pancetta cost $3.29 or $1.65 per serve
  • The peas are 99c per pack, but we used half or 25c per serve
  • The orzo is $1.42 for a 1 lb box, but only half was used for our two serves, or 25c per serve
  • Shaved Parmesan blend cost $2.99 but we used about 1/2 for this salad, or 75c per serve.
  • Add 45c for the oil, butter and seasonings.

The recipe tastes good, and costs $3.35 per serve.
