Apr 11: Ham and Cheese Sandwich; Pasta With Tomato-Blue Cheese Sauce


With lots of ham on hand, a sandwich on sprouted rye bread, with New Zealand Cheddar and tomato was on the agenda.

  • Ham is $1.10 per serve, but we used a half serve each on the sandwich, or 55c per serve
  • Par-baked roll is 63c
  • The NZ cheddar is $5.99 for the pack of eight, one ounce slices, or 75c per serve
  • Add 10c for your favorite pickle.

Lunch today was $2.03 per serve.


A surprisingly ham free meal! We used the remaining mini ravioli that disappointed us recently, and surrounded it with a flavorsome Tomato Blue Cheese Sauce. Although the recipe is for six, we made just two serves.

  • Canned tomatoes cost $2.19 or $1.10 per serve
  • Organic baby spinach is $1.99 per bag but we used only half or 50c per serve
  • Blue cheese crumbles are $3.49 for the pack but we used about 1/4 or 44c per serve
  • Cream was $2.49 for a pint, or 63c per serve
  • Add 25c for garlic, red pepper flakes and seasoning.

Tonight’s meat free meal was very tasty – the balance of acid from the tomato goes very well with the blue cheese – and cost $2.92 per serve
